The Borrego Badlands

The Borrego Badlands!  That certainly sounds hazardous enough, doesn’t it?  It conjures up images of contorted, sandy draws where you could lose your way in a maze and die a lonely death, sun-baked and parched under the hot desert sun; or be attacked by bandits holed up just around the next bend who would torture you, leave you to your fate, and ride off with the love of your life wailing from the back of their saddle.

These look bad alright, and you could certainly get lost easily enough.  Not for Team Anderson though, not this month at least when thanks to this month’s challenge we’re being especially cautious.  We just stuck to the pavement, put our miles in, enjoyed the dramatic scenery and made it back alive just so you could see for yourself.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    I love all that geology and gorgeous scenery. I’ve seen it many times from above on the many flights from LAX to DEN over the years but never seen it in person. Glad you did not subject yourselves to more hazard experiences. I know that the big earthquake is coming – about 3-6 weeks AFTER you leave.

      You make a good point. We do have a history of leaving disasters in our wake. It must be about time to move on to firmer ground.

    Great opening spiel, just forgot the circling vultures…then they were on the main post, so well done.

      Ooh, the vulture! Phooey – I missed a bet on that one. Good catch.
