Wildflower season spans the Springtime months, however, the Fall is also a great time to visit this California State Park. Its eight miles of trails wind through western Mojave Desert grasslands.
Watch for critters such as scorpions and lizards, gopher and rattlesnakes, coyote and bobcat.


  1. Tam jest bajecznie kolorowo. Pozdrawiam

  2. That is a very beautifully carpeted landscape Alice. That is one of the envies i have for the temperate countries!

  3. Ann,
    I agree!

    Temperate climates do lend themselves to some awe-inspiring displays. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Gorgeous image!!! I used to live in the Mojave Desert, and miss the swaths of color, brown hills, and blue blue sky you've captured here. I don't miss the triple-digit summer temps or the fact everything in nature seemed like it was trying to kill ya. That reminds me, you have to also watch out for black widow and brown recluse spiders.

  5. Wow, gorgeous!! I had no idea such beautiful grasslands existed there in a desert. Thank you for sharing!
