Visit the Borrego Badlands in BLACK KACHINA
To the heart of southern California's Borrego Badlands, scientists come from all over the world to study millions of years worth of geologic and paleontologic history. According to Desert USA's website, the "stark desert landscape (features) conglomerates, sandstones, claystones and mudstones, compressed and hardened, (and) chronicles a variety of landscapes, fossil life forms and climates that no longer exist at Anza-Borrego."
This view from Font's Point was described by Father Pedro Font in his 1775-76 diaries as "sweepings of the earth." Father Font was the chaplain on Spanish explorer Juan Baustista de Anza's expeditions in the area.
Anybody can get lost in these rugged and dangerous Borrego Badlands.
