“Borrego” is the Spanish word for the bighorn sheep which also happen to be the stars of California’s Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

And on my several hikes with fifth graders this last February and March, we got lucky enough to see the sheep – including their lambs – several times.

But this spring in the desert was also great for wildflowers.


Now with pictures!

This is just a quick note to point out that I’ve added a link to my Flickr Photostream to this blog. I’ll try to keep it updated, but Internet here has been a little spotty and very slow.
