Another Day in Anza Borrego

Another great day spent Jeeping in Anza Borrego Desert State Park. We met up with our friend, Frank, and few others for a full day of fun.

Somewhere in this valley, the Anza Expeditions of 1774 and 1775 made their camps. The view from the monument is beautiful.

After lunch we hiked the Slot. One of our friends had never been, so it was fun to share in her excitement as we hiked. For me, the Slot is always a scary place to be. What if there is an earthquake!?

Towards dusk, the mountains seemed to glow, however it lasted all of a couple of minutes. If you blinked, you would have missed the beautiful light on the mountains.

As usual when the boys air up the tires at the end of our trip, I take advantage of the fading light to get some beautiful sunset photos. There had been rain clouds overhead all day. They made for some great pictures.
