Hawk Canyon-Anza-Borrego Desert State Park-California

One mid-afternoon on our recent desert trip we took a tour with California Overland a company licensed to take people on excursions in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.  We highly recommend their tours and would go on one again.  Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great time learning about the desert. We stopped and walked in Hawk Canyon in late afternoon as the sun was beginning to go down and shadows were cast on the canyon walls.

Beautiful images of the canyon. Thanks for the info, I would know where to go for a tour of this awesome place.

Hi sbk --

Except for the last picture, your photos remind me of places I've been to in the Southwest -- particularly Canyon de Chelly (in Arizona) and Chaco Canyon (in New Mexico). Both are amazing places to visit -- and it looks like Hawk Canyon was too. :)

Hi EastCoastLife,

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment on my photos. Deserts can be awesome places.

Hi ytsl,

Thanks for your comment. You've been to more places in the US Southwest than I have and I envy you. We want to go back and see more.

Hi sbk --

My time in the US Southwest left me with a great appreciation of its archaeological heritage, scenic beauty -- and also Mexican food and Navajo tacos and "fry bread"! Hope you get to taste the last two some time. :)
