October 2018 | Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Our first trip to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park was a huge success … what a fantastic place to explore.

This shot was taken on the way back from exploring the Lower Coyote Canyon trail … which is a fun drive. We turned back after reaching the water crossing having decided that it looked a little deep. Will be back to do it again when I’m with friends who can help me out if I get stuck.

The afternoon sun, broken clouds, long shadows and the expanse of open desert really help to set off this Ocotillo.
