04/23/15 Fonts Point Anza-Borrego Desert

Posted: May 6, 2015 in Uncategorized

This was our last trip out to the Anza-Borrego Desert. We drove four miles off rode and hiked a short distance to Fonts Point. It’s a pretty incredible location. The hike seems like flat land, but when you get to the end, there is a 1300 foot drop down to the Borrego Badlands. When the crescent moon was up, we could see the rock formations below, but once the moon set, it was just a huge black hole. Except for some great conversation with my good friend, Jack Fusco, there were eight hours of stillness. We were able to catch a few meteors from the tail end of the Lyrid meteor shower. As we packed for the ride home, we heard an owl echo through the canyon. A perfect ending to an awesome adventure.
