Desert in bloom

Anza-Borrego State Park’s Spring “Superbloom”

Desert in “Superbloom”.

Subtle – the word best describing this. I grew up in SoCal and trust me, even a subtle “Superbloom” is a rare and noteworthy sight.

The same rains that soaked San Diego, make that all of California, gave Anza-Borrego Desert State Park nearly twice its average yearly rainfall this winter. All this led to an explosion of color. Although this year’s display is now beyond its peak, I ventured there to check it out.

These are a subset of the images I returned with to share…
