Camping at Palm Canyon in the Anza Borrego Desert

We are camping today at Palm Canyon in the Anza Borrego Desert with full hookup at a campground and the high right now is 91 degrees F. We went for a hike this morning up into Palm Canyon and found an oasis with flowing water and palm trees.








My wife went for a swim in a natural pool with a waterfall in the creek in the desert canyon.

Steve, looks like a prime place especially with that natural pool!

Your nose looks down. Can affect the fridge. Did you level up? We showed the Escape to some people and the fridge wasn't closing right. We needed to level up.

I have to go find that pool some time!

The trailer is level....it looks like the nose is way down but I checked it with another level and checked several spots inside and it's ok and fridge is working fine. BTW, I need to bring some swimming clothes for my wife next time we go there...!

It's a tropical illusion.

I take it that it's one of those naturist things in the pool! Just heard that use of the word over at FiberglassRV.

Anza Borrego is a wonderful spot. From the campground, in addition to the Palm Canyon trail, there are hikes to Hellhole Canyon, another oasis, and Culp Valley. The visitor centre is outstanding. The park has other great hikes such as Ghost Mountain, homesteaded by the Marshall South family in the 1930s (it is a strange location, you have to go and have a look see), and Pinyon Ridge. Also backcountry roads for 4*4 drivers. And if you are really lucky, you get to meet hotfishtacos and his lovely wife, hotlavalady, as did we Vancouver Island Escapees,Kootenay Chick and Prairieboy, who were in the non-hook up campsites.

We really had a great time in the desert and it was a treat meeting Doug and Michelle, fellow Escape 19' owners. Thanks for the kind words and we look forward to "Escaping" together again with you sometime soon!
