Anza-Borrego Wildflowers Report 2/21/12

Anza Borrego Desert Natural History Association published the following wildflower update for 2/21/21

“A walk into Canyon sin Nombre, covering no more than a mile from the Sweeney Pass Road (County Road S-2), had remarkable results. We saw in flower some 40-50 Barrel Cacti, six to eight Desert Lilies, and one clump of Beavertail Cactus. A number of Desert Lilies and Beavertail were in bud. These plants were not visible from the jeep road. We hiked off the jeep road cross country to the base of the long ridge that faces those who start down the jeep trail from S-2. We made out way in a southerly direction along the base of the ridge from there.

NOTE: The Canyon sin Nombre jeep road, and the roads beyond, are for high-clearance 4WD vehicles. The safest way to enter this area is on foot. Park off the pavement along S-2 and walk.”
