Borrego Springs, a tiny community overlooking the Anza-Borrego desert in Southern California, will soon be enjoying some of the most spectacular nature views thanks to the famous super bloom. Wildflowers bloom in millions conjuring a fascinating scene that thousands of people are keen to see.
This is not the first time Borrego Springs has witnessed flower delights. In 2017, the first super bloom drew some half a million people to the community, leaving it in a state of chaos, given that it did not have the infrastructure to cope with large numbers of tourists. A small town of 3,500 had to deal with the influx of up to 500,000 tourists. This year, authorities say, they are fully prepared to meet the challenge and accommodate tourists. The super bloom is expected to start in less than two weeks.
All sorts of local lodgings are fully booked. Authorities are distributing maps of the area and installing portable lavatories. Restaurants are hiring massive numbers of staff after the incredible flow of diners two years ago left them literally paralyzed and with no food. Community members say they hope people will come here at other months of the year too, as the desert has so much to offer at any time.
