Ocotillo Forest in Borrego Springs

Many of the streets in Borrego Springs are named after the brands

(used on branding irons) of past ranches in the area.

Can you name this street?

Send your answer to: borregochamberdirector@gmail.com

(If there is more than one correct answer we'll draw a winner)

Did You Know?

Ocotillos produce clusters of bright red flowers at their stem tips, which explain the plant's name. Ocotillo means “little torch” in Spanish. Plants bloom once in the spring from March through June depending on latitude then sporadically in response to rainfall during the summer. Hummingbirds pollinate the flowers.
