Pictorial Highlight: Anza-Borrego #2

 

These structures in the hard-packed sand are called “Elephant’s Knees,” created by the channeling of water and wind into an erosive force…

 

 

Cholla cactus flower.

 

 

Wind Caves!

 


Got SUPER sick our first night from bad Gardein; ended up puking for several hours the next morning.  This is how I roll–whenever I get sick, I finger-fuck myself until I puke out all the poison 🙂

 

 

 

 

Lookit this beautiful bugger. HUGE!

 

 

The ocotillo plant, one of my favorite plants, so amazing…they have thick, SHARP thorns. And their branches…

 

 

…like this! Hard and brittle and peely, almost like thinly sliced dried fruit, but HARD. Their root systems begin aboveground, perched over the sand like spiders. Marvelous plants.

 

 

Found this desert lily just as the sun was rising…

 

 

More brittlebush, at dusk.

 

Inside the Wind Caves!!

 

 

Are you ready for the finale?  The triple-whammy grand finale?

 

 

 

 

‘Nuff said!

    Gorgeous pics! It’s funny, you’ve been talking about this place for the past few years with such regularity, I have no idea why we haven’t gone yet. The rock formations and stunning landscape are sublime. Gardein shot, not so much haha. (how does it go bad?) Second to last pic, even without the rainbow, takes the cake.
