2019-01-27, Arroyo Salado (past Primitive Campground), Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, San Diego County, California, US

Today’s Survey Highlights:
• 1 lovely Nemacladus tenuis var. aliformis in flower.
• I enjoyed that John Randall (The Nature Conservancy) joined us for the first time on a botanical survey. I was in the field with him last November 11, 2018 for an all-day class on the “Geology of the Laguna Mountains” led by Don Barrie, Geology Professor (Mesa College).

We drove down the wash, stopping 1.1 mile past the bathrooms to get out and explore a side wash.
We then did the same at 1.4 mile past the bathrooms.
Both the main wash and the side washes are bursting with flowers. I think this week will be the peak bloom in this wash (note the 12 October 2018 rain).
The flower displays here are worth recommending to tourists.
