Borrego Springs, CA  is a small town located east of San Diego County and southeast of Palm Springs. It’s home to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Ocotillo Wells National Recreation Area.  The Salton Sea flanks the east side of the Park.

The main attractions that come to mind when I suggest Borrego Springs as a outdoor destination are the the desert wildflower displays in season (Feb. & March), the giant metal sculpture installations by Ricardo Breceda that bring the region to life and the vast trails of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

Lynn Bremner is the author of, a blog about desert road trips and tips. She started the blog after moving to Indio, CA where she now resides. Now a true desert dweller, Lynn has added in some of her own views on desert living. The heat does not keep her indoors in the summertime. She is out running, golfing or taking short day trips to some of the local points of interest. After years of traveling along the dusty, desert trails with her father, she has come to appreciate the beauty and solitude of the desert landscape. Her father’s passion for prospecting, desert lore and exploring the desert parks took their family to many interesting places, mostly in California, Nevada and Arizona. Lynn now writes about her desert road trips and intertwines a little bit of desert living into the mix.
