Our goal is to explore every canyon and wash in the Anza-Borrego Desert. We started hiking and got interested in flowers along the way. Now we are still hiking, but slower as we have to investigate everything interesting.

We started mapping certain rare plants like Xylorhiza orcuttii and we are close to mapping them all, nearing 10,000.

We hike a lot, like 5 days a week on longer day hikes, exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert and surrounding area.

Our seasonal bloom report:

We do have a free Android and iOS flower app of the Anza Borrego Desert.
