Wildflower Reports From DesertUSA

Snow on the San Jacinto Mountains is evidence of the recent rains that swept through the desert region.

Jan 19, 2010 Expected El Niño impacts during early 2010 may increase precipitation for some of the southwest. Major rain is expected this week for southern California and Arizona. The 2010 wildflower season could be a good one. Check back for updates.

We have a online wildflower field guide that is designed to help you identify desert wildflowers by color, scientific name, region and common name. The pictures are sized to work on the iPod, iPhone and similar devices. With your iPod or phone you will easily be able to identify wildflowers while in the desert. Links for downloads are on the bottom of the Wildflower Field Guide page. A good book that we recommend is the Mojave Desert Wildflowers Book

Do you need some photography tips on how to get great wildflower photos?  If so,  DesertUSA have several articles on DesertUSA that will help. Links to DesertUSA photography articles.

Lynn Bremner is the author of DesertRoadTrippin.com, a blog about desert road trips and tips. She started the blog after moving to Indio, CA where she now resides. Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.
