The January rains from the El Niño effect gave rise to early flowers and more little weed-like plants than I have ever seen at FOY. It was beautiful.
The cacti were in bloom, and the desert was in bloom. I am not an adventurous desert type, so I didn’t wander very far afield. I took Stella out for potty breaks, but the portion of the desert where we went didn’t have much to offer. I did hear from others that things out in the wild were beautiful. The park is home to many wonderful, although potentially non-native cacti, and I think they are pretty special.
