Very nice trip report, it's good to see parents bring their kids along to see what real nature is.

What an adventure for kids, to be able to imagine how it might have been to live up on Ghost Mountain. Great photos. Thanks for sharing.

Anu,
Nice T.R. It was nice to see some BIG pix on the AB site instead of the bandwidth conserving, small pix we see on here. In my former life in working right downtown L.A., we made many, many trips to the Anza Borrego starting about 1965 when you could grind over the entire Coyote Cyn. trail; the so-called 'Anza Trail' with a small 4WD. Anza is a special place. We have been the width and breadth of it. Even though we now live 500 miles to the north of it, It's still on our radar for a winter trip. Your Blair Valley pictoral shows almost NO degradation from almost 50 yrs. ago. That's nice to see.
With fond memories, jefe

Very cool! I love that area. Were the roads you were on all ok for 2wd? What about a dually? They looked pretty narrow..

Thanks for sharing your trip! Solar for me is next also! Can't wait!

Cheers!

I like the BIG photos as well!

That is good to know it hasn't changed much out there! Anza is special because of the street legal vehicle ordinance. Most people bypass anza and head straight for the ohv areas. I bet those areas are quite different from 50 years ago.

You are good out there right now both with a dually and 2wd if you don't mind desert pin stripes [emoticon] It is a bit narrow and they graded the road so there is some high dirt curbs but it just adds to the adventure. Right now It is the perfect adventure for a 2wd dually. Not sure after the rains (if we ever get any).

Ha! You are SO right! IF we ever get any rain! I'll keep an eye out on the weather and if it holds through the first of November I'm there! Thanks! Oh, and I"ll watch for those pin stripes! I'd rather not have them if possible....
