Lower Coyote Canyon
(6 miles, +500 / -500 feet).
We haven’t gotten much rain in Anza-Borrego this year, so sadly there will be no super-bloom. But you can still find lots of flowers near water sources, so Half Cookie and I decided to hike Coyote Creek, which flows year-round. It’s close to Borrego Springs, and the road is good enough that we could coax our Prius to the trailhead.
On our way back to the car we climbed a ridge nearby to get a view of the valley below. And there were a few new plants up here, too.
When we were done we headed back to Borrego Springs to the pool and our room at the Borrego Valley Inn (what a great place!).
