3/11/17 Saturday in Palm Desert, CA (Palm Springs-TT)
We heard that a rare 10 year “Super bloom” was happening now in the desert. I even read somewhere that this was better than the last 10 year Super bloom. So we took off for Anza-Borrego SP with our good friends Jack/Jackie, leaving by 7:45am. Unfortunately a whole lot of other people had heard this great news too (plus it was Saturday). We did stop in Henderson Canyon, on the way to take lots of great photos of those flowers. (When you click on each image it will show the caption)
By the time we reached Borrego Springs (heading for the Visitor Center) we were stuck in major congestion. The a park ranger directed us away from the Visitor Center: no parking available. We sure were glad we’d stopped for those great photos earlier. The guys suggested we visit the sculptures we hadn’t been able to see on our last trip, so here are more sculpture images, along with some more great flower photos from this area.

Sunday afternoon I helped Jackie with her Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 program, then we celebrated her birthday by taking her and Jack out to Red Robin (burgers). Yum! When we returned to the campground for the rest of our evening, we visited with the Lewis & Clark group outside. I loved the full moon that showed up then.
