We had a short drive over to the Anza Borrego area. We took a short cut through Box Canyon that ends up in Mecca, near the Salton Sea.
We found a site right off Rockhound Canyon Road, that is right before you enter Borrego Springs. We stayed here in January. Another great boondocking spot with great views of the hills and desert scenery out our windows. Thursday morning we happen to wake up right before the sunrise. I grabbed my camera and ran out to take some pictures of the awesome sunrise.
WOW, definitely worth getting up early to see such beauty. We had rain most of the day and the next morning a little snow could be seen on some of the far hills.
We had done some shopping in La Quinta when we got here but made a trip to the Farmer's Market in Borrego Springs on Friday morning. We bought some yukon gold potatoes, hummus, tabouli salad and tapenade. They have a great selection of food items, especially for such a small out of the way town.
There are plenty of 4 wheel drive and hiking trails and hopefully we will get to take advantage of some while we are here. Savannah resting up after a leash free romp in the desert.
