Our goal is to explore every canyon and wash in the Anza-Borrego Desert. We started with hiking and exploring, gradually our interest shifted towards plants. Now we are still hiking, but slower, sometimes by a lot, as we have to investigate everything interesting.

We started mapping certain rare plants like Xylorhiza orcuttii and we are close to mapping them all, nearing 10,000.

We hike a lot, like 5 days a week on longer day hikes, exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert and surrounding area.

We do have a free Android and iOS flower app of the Anza Borrego Desert.
