The Slot - Anza Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Springs, CA

The Slot Canyon hike in Anza Borrego Desert State Park is different than most of your regular hikes. This hike takes you through a very narrow canyon with walls rising high on either side. This picture was taken at sunset during our visit back in December 2013.
