Came here to check out the desert blooms in Anza Borrego State Park and someone in Borrego Springs suggested coming here as well? There's a lot to do in this area.

We enjoyed looking at the plants and wanted to buy one, but the young man working there knew nothing about plants and they weren't labeled. A real bummer for us plant lovers.

This year the wildflowers are particularly good. The road is sand, mostly packed and easy for regular cars (SUV not required).

A beautiful trip, which may require a 4-wheel or all-wheel drive, up into Coyote Canyon, passing through an Ocotillo forest and going by the Alcoholic Pass trailhead. There are a couple of picnic tables and a nicely placed bench up a small hill from the...More
