Sheep Canyon January 2012

We took advantage of some mild weather to explore Sheep Canyon in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We drove our old truck northwest out of Borrego Springs into the desert about as far as we could drive it on Coyote Canyon Road (a dirt road), to a point just beyond Third Crossing. We took the truck because there were six of us on this trip and all of us and our gear fit inside nicely (we never could have fit all of them, even without backpacks, in our old Saturn).

After that, we backpacked out to Sheep Canyon for two relaxing nights in the Desert!

Lots of nice quiet pools in Sheep Canyon in the Anza-Borrego Desert
