Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Last Sunday we visited Indian Point in Anza-Borrego State Park, the largest state park in the country: 60,000 acres.

This hill was inhabited for 4,000 years.

You can see where people made paints and food.

Food and paint production area. Deep = food, shallow = paint.

There were obvious trails weaving in and out of the rocks, though now they are over grown by bushes. I have the scratches to prove it.


The desert is really beautiful up here. It’s a higher elevation than Ocotillo and it gets visibly more lush and green as you enter the park.

I also felt like we could act out 3:10 to Yuma.

  1. I keep telling Neal that Ocotillo is Grand Turk without the water. Imagine yourself swimming over this photo in 25′ of water. Just like off Corktree Beach.
