San Diego County - Anza Borrego October Trip

In this thread, we can plan and organize a group trip to Anza-Borrego October 18, 19, and 20. Feel free to come for the whole weekend or a single day.

Friday night we will be camping at 32.7780790, -116.0283200 near Ocotillo. Saturday morning we will meet up at the Fish Creek Primitive Campground 33.023782, -116.110042

Saturday mid-morning once everyone makes their way to Fish Creek, we will review recovery gear, recovery methods, and possibly create some demonstration opportunities. We will break after lunch into groups (if needed) to match up on trail difficulties or to explore similar areas of interest. We will return to Fish Creek to camp for the night.

We can discuss Sunday plans as a group. There could be a quick morning run to catch the sunrise for early birds, and/or a cruise through Borrego Springs to see the sculptures nearby.
