With the rain, even how relatively little there has been this year, comes wildflowers around Southern California. "We are seeing a few flowers already, but the best of the bloom will most likely be from the last week of February through the first two weeks of March," reads the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park's website.

For Casey Schreiner of the SoCal hiking blog, ModernHiker, he's making plans. "Anza-Borrego is a beautiful park, and if the blooms are on schedule I might have to take another trip down there soon. They also let you camp just about anywhere in the park as long as you’re a distance away from the road and keep your fires in a metal container — no charge!"

Schreiner also notes that blooms in the nearby National Parks of Joshua Tree and Death Valley should come soon, too.
