San Diego's East County Desert areas offer a kaleidoscope of colorful flowers, relaxation at resorts, and wildlife.
Borrego Springs is about hidden treasures, subtle charm and epic wilderness, the antithesis of the highly manicured Palm Springs.
Heading east on Interstate 8 through the pretty mountains leads to the 600,000-acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, one of the richest and seemingly boundless living museums in San Diego county. The massive state park is home to roadrunners, golden eagles, kit foxes, mule deer, bighorn sheep, desert iguanas, chuckwallas, and four species of rattlesnake. The desert garden just outside the Visitor Center building provides a quick look at some of the vegetation in the park.
Springtime in the park is a magical affair as the as the dry, rugged landscape is transformed by winter rains, into a kaleidoscope of colorful wildflowers with splashes of bold colors across the desert dunes, creating a spectacular floral display. The annual desert spring wildflowers come in a variety of species from tiny flowers from mere sparkling bits of color no larger than the head of a pin to the majestic ocotillo with its fiery spines of scarlet that pierce the skyline.
The desert resort community of Borrego Springs,is a quiet funky corner in the world with a handful of restaurants, shops and places to stay. Cozy up in a casita at La Casa del Zorro, play Tom Fazio golf at Ram’s Hill Golf Course, nosh authentic Mexican eats at Carmelita’s or enjoy burgers, beer and karaoke at Carlee’s. There are also bed-and-breakfast inns, motels and several vacation rental condominiums and houses.
