Anza-Borrego Wildflowers 2/28/19

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association has two new reports

February 28: Mile Marker 31, Highway S-22
We took a photo of this area on Feb. 15 and said to keep an eye on it, as the sand verbena would be explanding.  Here’s a shot from today, late afternoon.  You can compare with the short from two weeks ago that is posted below.  The verbena should continue to expand in the days and weeks ahead.

February 28: Hellhole Canyon
With the Borrego Palm Canyon Trail still closed due to flood damage and deep water on the trail, Hellhole Canyon is a nearby area to be explored by those wanting to hike.  Fred and Carla hiked this area and have reported finding fields of Wild Canterbury Bells, an unusual find.  They also report that the side canyons, notably Flatcat Canyon is even better, with common Phacelia, Bigelow’s Monkey Flower, Wild Canterbury Bells, and Parish’s Poppy. The hiking details of their trip are here:
