Anza-Borrego Wildflowers 2/19/20

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association reportts

There is currently an early spring bloom taking place in many locations in Anza-Borrego.  Close to town the best place to go is Coyote Creek.  The flowers there are dominated by bright yellow desert dandelions but there are many other species in the mix, white chicory, orange desert sunflowers, and purple sand verbena.  There are flowers at the beginning of the dirt road but the best areas are about 1 1/2 mile in.  The road is in excellent shape right now and suitable for any vehicle (with care) to first crossing.  Beyond first crossing high clearance is essential and 4WD is recommended, but it is not necessary to go that far.

If you are looking for desert lilies there is a nice bloom taking place at the Arroyo Salado Campground.  Look for flowers along the road that leaves the campground to the east.  Desert lilies are also reported along the route to the Calcite Mine
