This page is a work in progress to organize and share the hikes that I have taken over the years.
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
Calcite Mine to Slot Canyon – A fun and impressive hike into a slot canyon.
Hellhole Canyon Trail to Maidenhair Falls – A hike that takes you from the desert floor to a palm oasis with “hidden” 20-foot falls. Additional photos from along the trail: ocotillo in bloom, lizard and jackrabbit.
Death Valley National Park
Dante’s View – More of a beautiful look out point than a hike.
Mesquite Flat Dunes – Really, really fun!
Joshua Tree National Park
49 Palms Oasis Trail – Hike from a pretty barren looking desert to a palm oasis. Joshua Trees are not seen on this trail.
Tenaja Falls – Short & quick hike to the (dry) falls.
San Diego County
Cowles Mountain – Very populated. A great place for fitness and nature.
Sycuan Peak – An extremely short hike to the summit.
Three Sisters Falls – Extremely steep hills down to the falls. And there is no clear trail to the falls. This can be a dangerous hike and many rescues take place.
