Desert Wildflowers Move Into High Gear
Sounds like views are peaking in the area just south of Joshua Tree National Park. The Theodore Payne wildflower hotline report for last week is here. A few hot days like yesterday and today and that'll dry things up pretty quick, so this weekend is probably prime viewing. I may try to get out there early next week, combining some astronomy at night with wildflower viewing in the day. Haven't decided if it's time to buy an annual pass or American the Beautiful Pass, yet.
