What North Park resident Scott Murphy loved about this desert scene was its seclusion. “Font’s Point gives you a 360-degree view of the badlands and Salton Sea, but it’s so hidden that you have to know a local, or someone who goes to the desert riding motorcycles or off-roading,” says Murphy, a medical photographer by day and landscape photographer by night and weekends. Once he spotted the red blooms, he knew he wanted to spotlight them against the grandiose backdrop in the sun’s last hour of light. “[Font’s Point] is best viewed at sunset,” he says. “It’s so peaceful. Locals bring chairs. Some even picnic.”
