As part of my brief expedition to the desert, I intended to pedal the Ogre up to Fonts Point, reputedly offering a fine view of the badlands between the Salton Sea and the town of Borrego Springs. The turn from the paved road is marked with a small sign in the sand. Interestingly, whether configured for driving, biking, or walking, Google Maps refused to allow me to plot a route from the turn up to Fonts Point. Apparently that’s because there’s no road or trail. Although four-wheel drive vehicles can get through, it’s really just a dry, sandy wash.
Well, if jeeps can get through, so can the Ogre and I, right?
