A Day Trip to Anza Borrego

On Saturday, Robert and I met up with our friend Frank, and two others from the So Cal Xterra Club for a cruise through Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

The weather was a bit chilly, but bearable, however the wind was very gusty, which made it feel colder.

It was a good day though as we traveled some new trails and revisted some old ones. We haven't been to the desert in several months so it felt good to get back out.

The photo to the right was taken in February 2010. The photo below was during our recent trip.

What caused it to fall? An earthquake? Wind and rain? Was anyone there to see it? I love the desert and all it's wonders.

The desert always amazes me. During some of our trips, we notice very small changes, but then we come across something like this that you can't help but notice. Everything is so alive even if you can't see it outright.

While the guys aired up the tires, I wandered about taking pictures. The sky was a photographer's dream! Such beautiful, soft colors, however it didn't last long. Dark came very quickly.
