Jan. 12 – The Borrego Valley
We spent one night in Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area (OWSVRA). A great campsite with showers, a Discovery Center and lots of rangers patrolling the area. We took a short walk in the morning to Blowsand Hill and watched the motorcycles and ATVs climb up the hill and zoom around. We continued our trip into Anza Borrego Desert State Park and headed to the Visitor Center at the edge of the tiny town of Borrego Springs. As we drove into Borrego Valley we passed through Galleta Meadows, a desert vista with strange creatures frozen in time and space!
Elsewhere in the desert prehistoric sabre-toothed cats stalk the prehistoric horses.
