Borrego Springs Invaded by iNaturalist

What is being called a "Super Bloom" in Borrego Springs brought a few people from the Bay Area down and I had the pleasure of please of spending a day with them. @kueda @damontighe and @sea-kangaroo are the three user names I remember that made the trip down and they joined myself, @matthew_salkiewicz and @biohexx1.

As usual, simply spending the day with and learning from the others was my highlight. We found flowers galore, some of which are rare (in San Diego County) and/or endangered. It is a banner year for Desert Lily and we had hundreds of them down on the desert floor. Another favorite of mine, the Ghost Flower, was in large numbers up one of the canyons that hiked.

Finding mushrooms in the desert is always interesting to me. Damon tried to teach those of us interested but I came home a bad student and entered in one incorrectly and was quickly corrected. I'll try to do better next time.

Thanks to each of everyone of you for a fun day. I look forward to spending more time with you out in the field somewhere soon.
