Wildflowers in the Anza-Borrego Desert

The Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California, the nation’s largest desert state park, and one of the very largest parks in North America. At more than 1,000 square miles, this Southern California park gets its name from the Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza, who captained an overland expedition in 1775-1776 from Mexico to San Francisco, and from its home to the peninsular bighorn sheep that habitat its higher elevations. Each year, depending on rainfall, the desert spring is filled with wildflowers and blooming shrubs, and 2008 was no exception.

While on vacation in Southern California in late March, I got a chance to spend a few hours in the park. These photographs are taken on a drive from Ocotillo in western Imperial County northward through the park, to Borrego Springs and back to Highway 78 along the Salton Sea.

Phanfare, the hosting site for my photography, has recently upgraded the site, and it is necessary to create a login and password to view the wildflower photos at
