From Anza Borrego to the Salton Sea

California is a big state. It’s larger than most realize, I’d wager, with “NorCal” and “SoCal” only taking up the bottom half of the state. With its size and location comes one of the most geologically-diverse places in the world, and the most biologically diverse state in America. From the highest point in the contiguous US, to the lowest, and from the driest of deserts to snowy tundra, California seems to have it all. Luckily for us, it means we’re never far from something new to behold. We set out this weekend for Anza Borrego, just a dozen or so miles north of the US-Mexican border, for a quick weekend trip.
