Over Easter weekend we headed down to Carrizo Plain for the fantastic wildflower bloom. Rather than clutter things up with text, I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Make sure to visit the full album of all the photos from Carrizo.

holy cow – really – no words to describe it – like this every year or was this year off the hook (more than usual)?
Great photos BTW

This is my second year visiting Carrizo and the flowers were way better. Of course, it can depend on when you go. I keep an eye out on their wildflower report and try to time the visit for the best bloom.

Love your blog! I stumbled upon it while researching trip options, but then recognized your name and photo from Paige’s facebook postings. Small world! Your photos and trip reports are wonderful. I will be back to read more of them. 🙂

Where is this park located in California. We usually go to Anza Borrego but would like to go some place else. Thank you.
