- A wildflower super bloom is nearing its peak in Anza-Borrega Desert State Park
- Plentiful rain over the winter is expected to make a particularly vibrant show
Thousands of people visit the park every year to see the desert lilies, poppies, dune primrose, sunflowers, desert dandelions and other flowers that dot the rugged landscape, according to the park foundation's website
This winter's rains should make this year's display particularly vibrant.
"We've had the ideal conditions for a pretty good wildflower bloom which we don't always get," State Park Interpreter Sally Theriault told CNN affiliate XETV
. "This could be the biggest bloom in 20 years and that's what we expect."
Michael Zandy went out early Saturday to get a sunrise shot of the flowers. He's visited the park twice since moving to the area in November and plans to go back soon.
Theriault said the park on Saturday got triple its normal number of visitors and that all of its parking lots were full by 11 a.m.
You can get a view of the wildflowers from the visitors' center, but the park's website says that you'll need a 4-wheel-drive vehicle, or be willing to hike
to reach some prime spots.
