December 2018 | Anza-Borrego Desert State Park | Miami

I finished the last few days of 2018 with friends on a camping trip in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We drove the 14 miles off-road up Fish Creek and into Sandstone Canyon in search of a dispersed campsite … and were in luck. Just before the Rock fall that blocked the end of Sandstone Canyon we found a flat area at the base of a rock wall and setup camp.

The morning started with a scramble up the slope opposite our camp site looking for a different perspective and view of the canyon. The morning light on the bush contrasted with the rock face and I think works well in black and white.
