Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is humongous and spans nearly 650,000 acres. It’s located just east of San Diego County and is home to about 600 or so desert bighorn sheep (aka borregos) that typically keep to the remote areas of the park.
Hop in your car and take to the many roads that crisscross the park. You’ll enjoy exploring the surprisingly diverse terrain from sweeping vistas and broad canyons to the random rock formations and alien-like plants dotting the open desert. It’s great place for a day trip or weekend camping adventure!
