Casey Schreiner at ModernHiker trekked over to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park this past weekend to see how the wildflower blossoms are doing: "While the wildflowers still aren’t out in force quite yet, there are a few areas in the north end of the park that are pretty colorful," he wrote. The park's website publishes a weekly wildflower report (scroll down) or you can call their wildflower hotline at (760-767-4684) for updates. Also: It's not just Anza-Borrego where wildflower blooms can be seen, check out bloom reports at Joshua Tree National Park, Death Valley National Park, Mojove Desert National Preserve and the various high desert wildlife sanctuaries run by LA County. And the valley-based Theodore Payne Foundation runs a great hotline for local blooms that will begin on March 6th.
