Anza Borrego Desert

Anza Borrego Desert

Desert Wildflower

Took a day trip on Sunday out to one of my favorite places to go during March- the Anza Borrego Desert- to see what the winter rains have produced in the wild flower displays.  I was disappointed in the late bloom and sparce displays.  Where on past years, Sand Verbena have covered the desert floor with a lavender blanket, this year they were just here and there.  There were a lot of people as the Anza Borrego Garden show was also underway, but the flowers were fewer than years past at this time of year.  The trip up through Ramona and Julian then down into the desert is about 2 hours and you can easily spend 3-4 hours sightseeing with your camera, it is a great day trip although spending the night in the desert and waking up to the fresh desert air is a treat in itself as well. If trudging through the desert flowers, be sure to wear long pants, tennis shoes and socks as the cactus will jump out and spear your feet and legs without warning, leaving a painful poison prick.  I took this video, identifying some of my favorite flowers.  Also filmed some of the scenery along the way.

Twin Oaks Valley Ranch in San Marcos, CA

Grace Episcopal Church

Twin Oaks Valley Ranch is in Northern San Marcos, CA, zip code 92069.  There are many areas called Twin Oaks Valley Ranch, many surround Twin Oaks Golf Course, some are upscale single level homes in a gated community of Victoria Ranch, and others are more rural, zoned for horses and agriculture.  Something for everyone, close to Cal State San Marcos and the soon to be built new Creek and University Districts.  Camera in hand join me for a short video tour of the area.
