As you can see, we made it to the desert ok! This was captured at sunrise just a couple of hours ago in Borrego Palm Canyon.
I don’t think I have ever seen another person is this area before sunrise, especially mid-week, so I was surprised to come across another photographer. I was even more surprised when it turned out to be a friend and fellow Alaskan photographer Lynn Wegener! He was here with two other Alaskan photographers who I have met over the years- it really can be a small world!
I know a lot of people will be wondering about the wildflowers. I will give a report on Monday once I have had a chance to scout more areas, but as you can see here, there are plenty of wildflowers blooming in Borrego Palm Canyon and many areas including the hills above Borrego are fairly green. From what I have seen, I would say it should be at least a “good” year, and probably one more good rain from an great year.
Speaking of Anza-Borrgo, I thought I would mention that I only have one more spot for the second weekend of my Anza Borrego photo workshop. I do have a more room on the first weekend, and thanks to a warm winter down here, the timing should be perfect for both weekends.
