Hike in San Diego’s Carrizo Badlands and Canyon Sin Nombre

Such an awesome hike today! I dropped fro Carrizo Badlands Overlook in Anza Borrego Desert State Park, into the Badlands themselves. Traversing a system of washes through the difficult land, I made my way into Canyon Sin Nombre. Dwarfed by canyon walls and ancient Lava flows, I made my way, finding a slot canyon on the opposite side from where I started. I explored the slot canyon and found myself up on the larger canyon rim. All that before turning around and coming back through it all again! 6 miles of pure San Diego awesome! Every step I took on this hike changed the land around me, opening up entirely new views and revealing previously hidden beauties. Absolutely wonderful!

The above description really sums up the entire hike, so I’ll leave it at that, with the pictures below. Some of the pictures have some issues, caused from dropping my camera into the sand about an hour into the hike. I wasn’t able to get all of the dust out properly until I got back to the car, so that affected my pictures, unfortunately. For the most part, all pretty minor, though! Definitely an awesome hike!
