We made a quick hop from Palm Springs to a boondocking area in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park for New Years. We had spent some time in mainly the Southern area of the park with my parents and wanted to see more of what the area had to offer. This is basically just wide open desert that you pull up and park for free. We fortunately stopped to ask another couple about regulations and they turned out to be fellow members of our Escapees RV Club (Stacey and Gary Quimby of www.pauhanatravels.com ). They invited us to park next to them.
We ended up camping out 10 days and enjoyed getting to know the Quimbys. With New Year’s Eve approaching the area got a little crowded but still felt private.
The awesome Pauhana Travels setup.
These metal sculptures at Galleta Meadows north of Borrego Springs are incredible. Huge and very detailed. I think the Jeep guys are my favorite.
The Slot hike takes you into a narrow slot canyon that is definitely not for the claustrophobic.
Fonts Point was a short drive from our camp and had great views of the badlands.
Despite a little rain we had a great time and just scratched the surface of things to see and do.
A last campfire with our friends.
