Desert California Wildflowers

The desert in California comes alive with wildflowers blooms hopefully every spring. Southern California has a typical Mediterranean climate. Most of the year there are desert-like conditions with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. But when the rainy season come the landscape completely changes from a desert into a green paradise. About every ten years Southern California receives an overabundance in precipitation the creates an amazing display of wildflowers in the desert. On the edge of the Mojave Desert and the Tehachapi Mountains you can find these incredible wildflower blooms. This one morning we hiked up into the hills awaiting the sunrise and photographed this display of wildflowers as the sun came up.
