The rare plants:
We, Carla and Fred are exploring the Anza-Borrego Desert since 2007 and are hiking almost daily in often remote area's.
You find a description of most of our hikes here:

In 2015 we started mapping Carlowrightia arizonica and Xylorhiza orcuttii and found that rare doesn't actually equals low numbers
A rare plants is often confined to a specific area and isn't usually found outside that area.
Here is our list of rare plants:
Ericameria teretifolia - Green rabbitbrush
Horsfordia newberryi - Newberry's velvet mallow
Xylorhiza orcuttii - Orcutt's woody-aster
