Here’s my take on this week’s travel theme from Where’s My Backpack. I was going to search through my pictures for Death Valley stuff, redwood bark textures, etc., but as I looked through my Anza-Borrego Desert pics, I found so many textures I loved, I said screw it (well I didn’t actually say it out loud, I thought it), let’s go all Anza!! So without further flappy-flap jaw-blah-blah…..
Tiny swath of the Borrego Badlands at sunrise.
Some kind of desert ant–bigger than even a large almond! Love the textures on his back/shell/wings/whatever that is!!
This rock formation is 60-70 feet high.
Dinosaur! Oh no wait, that’s a lizard; Anza-Borrego Desert State Park has something like A HUNDRED different species of lizards!!
In the desert, sand turns to mud turns to….this.
Saved my favorite for last…
The marvelous, ever-intriguing, multi-faceted ocotillo plant; these are a portion of its roots, so much of which squat ABOVE the sand!
