After all the rain recently and seeing the pictures on the forum, my curiosity was up, so I decided to take a quick trip out to Borrego Springs and see the area for myself. Driving down S-22 into town I was amazed at the green color on the desert floor southwest of town.


Looking the other direction the hillsides above me were just as beautiful.


It looked more like springtime or late winter, not the middle of September. I wonder...do Brittlebush plants ever bloom in the fall? These looked like they could but I did not see any buds.


The ocotillo also looked very happy.



Found a nice little "pond" to swim in and relax beside all afternoon and into the evening.


It was a nice trip and I hope the desert gets lots more rain during the winter, just not all in a day. Looking forward to lots of trips this fall.

You are not kidding David, that is a lot of green. Almost looks tropical smile
The Ocotillo look amazing.

Finally have my LandCruiser fixed so I will be planning some Fall trips also.

Wow, that *is* green! Glad you got out there.... it's been TOO long since I've been out there. Hey, something caught my eye in one of your photos, circled below. Sheep?

Was also out last weekend (near Blue Angels Peak and the border) and have to agree, things are looking pretty green. That's a mighty nice tinaja pic, Hikerdmb smile
