Came here to check out the desert blooms in Anza Borrego State Park and someone in Borrego Springs suggested coming here as well? There's a lot to do in this area.

A beautiful trip, which may require a 4-wheel or all-wheel drive, up into Coyote Canyon, passing through an Ocotillo forest and going by the Alcoholic Pass trailhead. There are a couple of picnic tables and a nicely placed bench up a small hill from the...More
