On Tuesday April 22nd we took a day trip out to Anza-Borrego. It was near the end of wildflower season, but we did see a few. We spent some time in the visitor’s center and the cactus garden. From the visitor’s center we followed a self guided tour down “”erosion road””. It was fun to learn a little bit more about the geography of the desert. It’s amazing how the bland desert can get some more character when you know what you are looking at. We even got to try our hand at a little bit of (mild) off-roading. There a wash that you follow to get to the best overlook in the park, Font’s Point. It was marked and the park service encourages you to go if you are in a 4×4, which we were. It was such a mild case of off roading that we never even put the Kia into four wheel drive. The overlook was amazing, and the pictures don’t do it justice. After visiting Anza Borrego we couldn’t resist a side trip to Julian. Julian is a little town that was once a mining community and is now making it’s money by being scenic and mining the tourists. Their claim to fame is their apple pie, yum!! AJ was great. By the time we were eating dinner he was ready to be held though. That was his limit for spending time in a car seat and/or stroller. So, we passed him off and lingered made sure he got his minimum daily cuddles. Check here for all our pictures, I’ve included my two favorites on this page.
