Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association has yet another wildflower bloom repot:t
Today’s hike started just before third crossing in Coyote Canyon, part of Box canyon, a fork of the Box canyon that leads in to Coyote canyon and back toward the lower willows.
What you can find right now are sand verbena\’s, rabbit bush and very early smoke trees blooming.
You can see the result of the August rain; a huge deposit of sand from Box canyon into the lower willows.
The smoke trees were a unexpected surprise.
On the return, towards the lower willows, the wash was almost unrecognizable.
And the hike was more like a bush walk crossing the willows, the trail runs completely different from last year.
Watch out for very deep holes.
The road up to third crossing is very good this year.
