Feb. 20 – Fonts Point

We continued our travels to the west side of the Salton Sea. We will spend a few days enjoying the views around Borrego Springs, the little town in the doughnut hole in the center of Anza Borrego State Park. After setting up our campsite we took the Jeepster for a ride to Fonts Point to see the sunset. The sandy tracks heading up the hill had been graded since last year, and there were several vehicles headed our direction. When we arrived at the scenic point there was a hubub of activity.

We eventually figured out that a movie was being filmed, but we were able to carry on with our tourist activities of picture taking and plaque reading.

A quick internet search back at camp informed us that the movie will be titled “Last Days in the Desert”.
