In August 2013 a summer thunderstorm brought plenty of rain, with some flash flooding.
November 2013 a little bit of rain.
December-January So far the best flowers this season.
A lot of flowers are dying off because of the lack of water.
Cacti are starting to bloom, the barrels and fishhook look good this year.
Normally we have to watch for snow, when planning a hike, now there isn't any snow, even on the highest peaks.
Now we experience a record breaking drought, it's warm and dry.
We found Borrego Springs more or less by accident, coming out of the Netherlands, it's not the first place you think of spending your time.
Now years later we live in Borrego Springs, in winter and spring and we are still finding new places to hike.
The park is ideal to go cross country and you find something new every time.
When the time is right, the flowers make things a lot more colorful. (December-May). But when you look carefully, you find flowers all year long.
Our goal, to hike every single canyon in Anza Borrego and we are going strong.
