A spring road trip to the California desert parts in search of wildflowers
Morning walk flowers
First stop of the day was at the Visitor Center in the park to get the Anza NHT stamp. From there we headed back south to Box Canyon, along S2 to hike and explore. This was a trail/road established by the Mormon Battalion. Look beyond the sign to see a portion of the historic road.
Back towards Borrego Springs we drove along the Blair Valley Road a 1/2 mile to the Butterfield Trail Monument. Beyond the monument the trail climbed up to a beautiful overlook.
After lunch we hiked into Plum Canyon, the flowers were gorgeous! Today was what I was hoping it would be - flowers galore!
Later we explored a northern portion of the park, up Coyote Canyon. We the drove out S22 up Montezuma Pass Rd to hide a letterbox. During the day we found 2 letterboxes, neither had been found in 5 years!
