After my stop in Escondido, I made a stop in Indio, where I went to quite a few ukulele jams, but failed to take any pictures. My next move was to the annual Thanksgiving stop in Borrego Springs, CA. We even got some snow on the mountains!
My first hike was up the mountain/hill behind where we are parked.
Every year we go up here to see the big snake, which gets more intricate each year.
And more creatures appear each year. One of these new ones is a Big Horn Sheep.
All around Borrego Springs are beautiful rusty metal sculptures done by artist Ricardo Breceda.
And if you want one for your garden, you can buy one in town.
One day we went out to hike to the Calcite Mine Slot Canyon. Since I was driving, we walked to it instead of taking the scary road.
But the slot canyon is just beautiful, and well worth the hike.
