Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Is anyone going to see and photograph the desert bloom this weekend?

I'll be in Miami this weekend.

But, I would be up for a desert drive and wildflower viewing another weekend soon if it is still a good time to view the wildflowers and others are up for it.

Hmmm, almost a 3 hr drive each way... a little far but it looks interesting!
I haven't planned on going though.

Welcome to my world for the northerly drives .

I won't be able to make it this weekend, but it is a very beautiful thing to behold. I'm not sure that this weekend will be the peak of the flower season, since it's only just gotten warm last weekend. But in any case with all the rain we had this past winter, the flowers should be spectacular this year in the desert.

Something to keep in mind for a few weeks before the desert bloom disappears. Julian is well known for apple pies IIRC.

I've never been to Anza-Borrego.

A sample of what it looks like during wildflower season. I took this one in 2005. Interestingly enough that picture was taken on 3/27 that year, which exactly matches the date of next Saturday. And that was not nearly as wet a year as this one. Should be spectacular...
