Secrets of Desert Cahuilla with Paul Johnson
and Anza-Borrego Foundation


The Desert Cahuilla property is one of the newest additions to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. It consists of tilted, boulder-covered terraces atop deep, sedimentary deposits - all of which have been dissected by a multitude of steep-sided winding washes. On this four-wheel-drive trip we will explore the geologic wonders of Big Wash and Verbena Wash. We will see many different kinds of sandstone concretions, fault offsets, rich plant life, deeply patinated rock deposits, and some of the most pristine desert views in Anza-Borrego.

This event is sponsored by Anza-Borrego Foundation. Please visit our website for more information about vehicle requirements and hiking for this class, as well as registration.
