With all the buzz about this year’s Desert super bloom, we were excited to take a quick trip to see how things were progressing. As we dropped down into Ocotillo, the drizzly overcast morning that had been following us from the coast had transformed into bright blue desert skies. These are some of the wildflowers and cactus blooms that we found.
