http://heyharriet.blogspot.com/ Update: For those of you who asked about this wash, it was right off the dirt road in another larger wash which is the main route into Font's Point. You CANNOT drive that road with a normal car! You either need a 4 wheel drive OR a high clearance vehicle (we have a 2 wheel drive XTERRA). The reason is that the road IS a dried out wash! There is a lot of soft sand there and when I drove it, hubby kept yelling, "Floor it and don't STOP!" We did caravan in with our photography group and I would definitely advise you to not risk getting stuck in the wash or drive it alone! However, we did see a family there who drove their Suburban in and they did make it. BUT...there is NO cell phone service out there, so if you get stuck, you would have to wait for another car to come along. Fortunately, it IS a popular photo spot and people and tour companies do drive out there through the wash. Finally, there is a tour company in Borrego and they take 4 wheel drive big ex-military transports through the wash and down into the canyons. Just be sensible if you wish to visit Font's Point. You can certainly ask around the town of Borrego and find out more information about it. My header photo was taken at the end of the wash, looking out across the badlands at Font's Point.
Deserts and Beyond
Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.
