Desert Abloom

We've just witnessed one of the most spectacular desert blooms on history. I couldn't wait to share it with you.

Once we're unpacked and settled, I'll get that gallery work done and share a few more.

This photo was taken at the foot of the Coyote Canyon in Anza Borrego Desert State Park just two mornings ago. While the bloom is at its peak in this spot, there are many many more flowers to come. Different species are getting ready to bloom and the tide is climbing the park's multiple elevations. Just a wee bit higher in this canyon we found the first of the beaver tail cactus blooming with many more cacti in bud.
