Box Canyon Blog: ‘You might as well be walkin’ on the sun’

From the bloggers at Box Canyon Blog.

Anza Borrego State Park is 913 square miles of scorched earth desert. Most casual passers-through find it uninspiring, if not downright hostile. Nothing worth photographing. Nothing to write home about. Nothing to wax poetic over. Just a bleak, sunburnt, sparsely vegetated desert, something to squint at through tinted windshields of luxury SUVs and wonder if Govie was playing a little fast and loose with the word “Park.”

Anza Borrego is a land of extremes. Here it is, barely February, and the sun is brutal… relentless. Temperatures soar into the 80’s, not one merciful cloud in the sky, not a single tree under which to seek shade. By noon Goldie is more dry sauna than camper, it’s thermostat thermometer pegged.

Bobbie’s edgy. I play “Middle Man” every day, till finally, minutes short of being a solo Rv’er, the sun settles behind a range of purple mountains (“Majesty” implied). We shuffle over for Happy Hour with our Gang of “Crips and Bleeders.” Not thirty minutes later, Bobbie and I shiver and whine for blankets.
