Young Big Horn Sheep along Borrego Palm Canyon Trail in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

The harshness of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park may seem inhospitable to large mammals. Yet, a sizeable population of big horn sheep travers the ridges of the desert and occasionally descend to drink from the rare springs that pop up and eat the greener plants that thrive around these rare water sources. These are some of the best places to spot these generally skittish natives and, oh, I loved it!
