Anza-Borrego Desert State Park


Going from San Diego to the Salton Sea, I crossed through the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Photos taken one morning along the road from San Diego through Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, on the road to Salton Sea. Lots of flowers along the road, I had to stop a few times ! The landscape is desolated and the temperature change is brutal. From 60 deg along the shore in Del Mar, increasing steadily while climbing, to around 95 deg at Hell Hole Canyon trail. Later in the day, it would get over 100 deg around the desolated Salton Sea area. See next post…

Surprisingly to me, “Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California. Five-hundred miles of dirt roads, 12 wilderness areas and miles of hiking trails provide visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the California Desert. The park is named after Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza and the Spanish name borrego, or bighorn sheep.” I didn’t see any sheep, sad.
