Trip Destination: Anza-Borrego


Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is in the extreme south of California on the Mexico border offers many different landscapes in which you can lose yourself for days.

With plenty roads to explore, history to absorb, and natural wonders to see, you don't want to miss this special place.
