Anza-Borrego Wildflowers photos

After record rainfall, it appeared that 2005 would see an early and spectacular wildflower display in Anza-Borrego. The Dzrtgrls, armed with cameras and wildflower books, picked the first weekend in February for our wildflower orgy! We focused on S22 east of Borrego Springs, Henderson Canyon Road, The north end of DiGiorgio Road and into Coyote Canyon, and finally Glorieta Canyon Road and the hiking trail at the end. So, if you've never seen the desert in bloom, and don't know your Ajo Lily from a Brown Eyed Primrose, come on along. We'll show you a sampling of what's flowering in the general Borrego Springs area and help you learn the names of some of the more common varieties. Saturday evening found us exhausted and covered in pollen. We had driven down to Pinyon Wash to spend the night. Sunday would find us returning to Harper Flat in an attempt to find another Indian village site. Click on "Harper Flat: The Return" on the trip page to join us on this adventure.
