Anza-Borrego Desert State Park's quiet, stark beauty entices at nearly every time of year
Most people head to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in late winter or spring to view wildflowers. But don't limit yourself to just one time of year. Whatever the season, California's largest state park—with nearly 650,000 acres—is worth a visit to marvel at the mesmerizing desert landscape.
“It’s the beauty, the solitude, and the surprise that bring people to Anza-Borrego,” says retired park environmental scientist Joe Hopkins, who now works as a volunteer.
