Happiness on the Road: Anza-Borrego State Park

As many of you know I’ve quit my job, sold my house and am traveling across the United States towards my appointed start date of February 26th to do a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail (AT) from Springer Mountain, GA to Mount Kathadin, ME (2189 miles). ~ Rev Kane

The Oasis

So a week or so before heading to Anza-Borrego, a couple of friends mentioned that they did a wonderful hike up to an oasis in the park. So I was excited to realize that the trail head for the hike was just outside the campground I was staying in. It was a beautiful little hike with a lot of nasty little boulders on the trail. Which was a good workout for my ankles and knees, I haven’t hiked any bad trails in a while and I’ll definitely see some bad trail on the AT.

So here’s a few photos I took on the walk and a little sound worm to drive you nuts and make you smile.

I love this one, look to the right and you’ll see a man standing there, it gives the scale of how big these palms grow.
