Desert wildflower season in the desert has gone on longer than expected this year due to cooler temperatures and abundant rains. It is starting to warm up so it won’t last too much longer. Here are the links to all the major parks’ most recent reports as well as the DesertUSA and Theodore Payne Summaries. I would recommend checking the most recent reports and calling or e-mailing the parks directly before going to make sure you are not disappointed.
