It might be early for Travel Tuesday, but we can't wait to share the Anza-Borrego Desert, just east of San Diego. After a long winter of up to six inches of rain, double last year's, the wildflowers are ready to bloom. Now, for the first time in two decades, a vibrant wildflower bloom is expected within the next week or two. Some early bloomers have already sprouted including yellow desert sunflowers, wooly Indian paintbrush, and the Parish poppy. With winter's heavy rain and early spring rains, the soil never dries, creating this beautiful wildflower bloom.
