2019 DESERT SUPER BLOOM


You might have already seen the pictures on Instagram, of the hills covered in poppies, or of the wildflowers in bloom across the state.

A super bloom is a rare occurrence where large amounts of desert flowers open at the same time, making for stunning landscapes covered in native, local flora. And this year, we’re being treated to the second super bloom in two years, following the enormous 2017 blooms at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, blooms so large that they could be seen from space.

Luckily, you don’t need to travel to Borrego Springs to experience this year’s super bloom for yourself. This year, desert blooms are popping up all over Coachella Valley.

Flower sightings of species such as Desert Sunflower and Brown-eyed Primrose have been reported at the Coachella Valley Preserve, located at 29200 Thousand Palms Canyon Rd, Thousand Palms.

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

Besides a chance at seeing the Joshua Trees in bloom, the fields of poppies, daisies, desert dandelions, and many other wildflowers that have been spotted off of I10, east of the south entrance to Joshua Tree make a visit to the national park worth it. Nonetheless, you’re bound lots and lots of flowers in and around the park.

For directions, head over the National Parks Service official site.
