Good Finds

The field trip to the El Paso wash was great. We had a big turn out and the weather was lovely. Although we didn't find any plant plants where we surveyed, it was good to see what was out there. But along the way a fellow treasure hunter and I visited a few other spots looking for rare plants and we found the beautiful blue Phacelia nashiana (see above).

These two pictures are at the Kramer Hills, the wildflowers there, although not rare, are blooming in en masse. Amazing! You'll see desert dandylions, white tidy tips, scale buds, snake heads, phacelia and many more. To get there, take Hwy 395 and go east down Kramer Rd (a dirt road) 9.4 miles south of Kramer Junction or 20.8 miles north of Adelanto. Happy hunting!
