We passed by Coachella Valley, Indio, Palm desert and Salton Sea. But what's supposed to be the Anza Borrego which is on our top destination now has become another next spot to visit. We went off the road like a jeep trail. I drove a few miles of uneven and cracked road like it has been damaged by the earthquake. Believing smooth road is ahead and there was no vehicle along with us or coming from opposite side, I pushed a few more miles. It was an empty road that seemed to be abandoned. I guessed when I googled that the two wheel drive is ok and off road jeeps are not necessary only meant for those coming from the east. Seeing this sign "5mile off-road ahead" made me a quick u-turn. GPS pointed me to other direction. Know before you go. I'm trying to outsmart Google here. Added to that chills, my celphone showed no service and that's when I decided to go back to highway and headed the resort.
The Anza Borrego is just right there, it may not be our luck this time but there's more spring to come and our eyes already feasted with the beautiful lined palm trees. The photo below is from Joshua Tree National Park as we enter the desert. Yes. I also thought we're going straight to Oasis Resort in Palm Springs. The park is just as spectacular and thats in my next post.
