Crowds are flocking to the small desert town of Borrego Springs to check out the flowers in the Anza-Borrego Desert State park, with 600,000 acres, there are other places to visit — and other ways to get there — than just Borrego Springs.

I’ve been suggesting going south from Borrego Springs, either down Banner Grad via Julian (which I understand is also a mess) or heading north from Interstate 8 through Ocotillo. Heading north from Ocotillo means you avoid the traffic jams down Montezuma Valley Road and Borrego Springs.

Now the County of San Diego has created a video about the flowers near the Agua Caliente County Park, located almost inside the state park and best visited via I-8 and Ocotillo.
