Martin Luther King weekend in Anza Borrego Desert State Park

The nice thing with the Anza Borrego Desert State Park is that it takes less than two hours to get there from San Diego. It is the largest state park in California and it is possible to camp anywhere. There are countless dirt roads to access very nice places. This time we went to Little Blair Valley.

We took the water we needed for almost three days and we headed there for a long and quiet week-end. At night, no light in sight, no one but us. The moon was coming late so it was pitch black most of the evening... The coyotes were not far and the sky was full of stars. The first night we wanted to see them from inside the tent so we did not put the "roof" on top of the tent. It was beautiful to watch while we were laying down but in the middle of the night the cold air woke us up. It was not far from freezing.

We hiked from the campsite, exploring the area with the kids. It is a harsh environment we love to visit in the winter.

I've got the "desert virus" when I went to the Saharan Desert with my family for the first time, I was 11 years old.
