I can see for miles and miles...Font's Point, Anza-Borrego Badlands~






Talk about seeing for miles and miles...these are the badlands near Anza-Borrego state park. Hubby and I put up our tripods at Fonts Point and went exploring, looking for the perfect spot to get a photo...The Salton Sea would be to the left on the top photo. Unfortunately, by the time we drove home, it was past sunset and we didn't get any photos of the sea. Somebody we will have to drive down there and get some photos of it. But, that's another adventure!

A couple of thoughts...Font's Point can ONLY be reached by driving 4 miles through a dry wash. It is treacherous driving and you MUST have either a high-clearance car (or truck) like our XTERRA OR a 4-wheel drive. There is a tour company in Borrego Springs and they had a military-like transport which took 2 couples in ahead of us and then they went down some of the canyons. I would LOVE to do that sometime! Also, bring your own water, hat, and sunscreen. There are NO restrooms there, but there is a lovely park on a circle drive in the middle of town, which is about 5 miles away. The town itself is very cute and quaint...a lot of retirees live there. Finally, I believe you can hike from the Anza-Borrego state park up to Highway 74 and Sugarloaf Mountain...somebody please correct me if this is wrong. But, a lot of hikers do enjoy the state park! There is a lot of wildlife to see and in the spring, there will be a lot of wildflowers due to all of our winter rains. ENJOY!
