Travel: Anza-Borrego Springs

Welcome back to another travel post from my mom Margie Dingfelder. This week we are off to Anza-Borrego Springs State Park. Enjoy!


“While you are in the Palm Springs area take a 2 hour drive or less to Anza-Borrego Springs State Park. If you like hiking and beautiful desert landscapes you can lose yourself in the vistas. The best time to go is in the spring when the cactus and other flowers are blooming. Don’t go from May until November! It can get very hot!! Go to Galletta Meadows to see the huge metal sculptures. There used to be a famous old Hoberg resort there that the rich and famous used to come to from Hollywood. One of my friend’s grandmother used to own it. Check it out plus the flora and fauna there. While you are there, be sure to check out the Salton Sea, a destination in itself but close enough to take them both in the same day. It is a huge shallow saline lake on the San Andreas Fault that it over 200 ft below sea level.A desert hiker’s dream, I went for the photos too. Here is a sample.
Have you ever been there?”
