When the TV cameras start showing up to provide morning feeds to news shows, you know it must be a great year for wildflowers in Anza-Borrego, and very near peak. It is both!
The fields along Henderson Canyon Road, and Coyote Canyon beginning at the north end of Digiorgio Road have to be two of the best areas. Both these locations are in Borrego Springs and contain endless fields of wonderful colors. It is an amazing site to see, and unlike anything you would normally see in the desert. The photo below is from Coyote Canyon this a.m.
If I lived anywhere near this wonderful event, I would get on my horse, drive my car, or even ride the neighbor’s broken bike – whatever it took to get down here to experience this fairly rare show before it is too late. It has been three years since it last looked like this, who knows when it may happen again.
Now for the bad news. The weekends are very crowed in this little town, so bring your patience. The other bummer – it looks like a big storm might be hitting this Saturday or Sunday. During the week is the best time to visit, but it is still worth fighting the crowds and weather if you can only come on the weekends.
