|Deserts in Southeast California
We saw this desert bighorn sheep when we were hiking in Borrego Palm Canyon in Anza Borrego Desert
We spent two days and one night touring the Death Valley National Park in southeast California in early April
2003. These two photos show the views at the Zebriskie Point in Death Valley.

Twenty-Mule-Team Borax Trail in Death Valley
Not only the sceneries in Death Valley in the daytime are fantastic, but also the observation of the bright stars
in the sky at night is breathtaking. For many years, I have not seen such open panoramic view of the whole sky
of bright stars without interference from man-made light pollution and obstructions by trees and buildings.

We stayed 2 days and one night in the Death Valley National Park. Wow! We enjoyed watching sky full of
stars (滿天星斗) during that night in Death Valley. The air was bone dry and there was absolutely no city light
pollution. It was a fantastic experience to see so many stars in the sky.
Scotty Castle in Death Valley. There is a good sized spring here supplying water for this castle in the desert.
Anza Borrego Desert State Park
We toured the Anza Borrego Desert State Park in southern California on November 1, 2006. It is about 40
miles south of Palm Springs.

Scenic Desert Highway S22
We drove from Highway 86 near Salton Sea through the Scenic Desert Highway S22 to go west into Anza
Borrego Desert State Park. The desert scene along this highway S22 is unusual and impressive as shown in
We also hiked in a slot canyon (The Slot) in Anza Borrego Desert State Park as shown in the following pictures.
This slot canyon is accessed by an unpaved road (Buttes Pass Road) off Highway 78. One needs good
instructions from the park ranger to be able to find this slot canyon because it is below the general ground
surface in that area such that one cannot see it from the road.
