On our Third Day we headed over to the closer by Anza – Borrego Desert State Park of California

We explored 17 Palms, The Pumpkin Patch and The Mud caves

 

17 Palms – A palm oasis that was the stop for water for many a early traveler. The tradition is kept in that water bottles are left or taken as needed under the umbrella of one of the palms (as is a guest register)

The Pumkin Patch

” Concretions ” Formed around 4 Millions years ago – much like a pearlĀ is formed – these laid buried for eons until erosions by wind and water unearthed them to reveal them to the world once more
