For the second year in a row, we rang in the New Year at Rockhouse Road in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Last year we met Stacey and Gary Quimby of www.pauhanatravels.com . This year we were joined by fellow Xscapers Kirk and Anya, Dan and Lisa, Kelly, Denny and Veronica, Bill and Porter, and Camille and Bryce.
For New Year’s Eve, Denny cranked up the Outlawz dance party with his projection screen on their patio.
The weather was much, much better than last year. No rain and windstorms. We made it to midnight and a little beyond.
Group hike to the Slot.
Jaime and I also went to another slot canyon, located deep in the southern part of the park – Canyon Sin Nombre.
I took a Jeep ride up to Sheep Canyon and hiked into probably the most remote palm canyon oasis in the park.
More information on places to explore in the park from an article I wrote on the Outbound Collective.
