“To this site I gave the name of Zienega de San Sevastian, alias del Peregrino. In the place where we halted there is a good spring of very potable water, and there are many others to the west which are saline. From them is formed a marsh more than a league long with plentiful pasturage, although it is likewise salty.” –Juan Bautista de Anza, March 10, 1774

It was a great weekend spent camping with my family and other adventure-minded people, exploring the history and beauty of our local deserts. Click here for more photos and the complete write up: http://johnandautumnsadventures.blogspot.com/2013/10/outdoor-adventure-usas-2013-borregofest.html

"Continuing on our way, we suddenly came upon a water hole around a bend in the wash. I jokingly mentioned over the radio that someone should drive through it, but didn't think anyone actually would." smile smile

Can't recall if I posted this before but this is above Old Kane Spring Rd in Carrizo Wash right before it joins San Felipe Creek. We tried for about an hour to get the Bronco out before giving up. Glad you got the FJ out. Nice trip report. Liked the shell pic. Haven't seen any that large. Tom

Yeah, that mud is nothing to mess with! Most of the washes had barriers just north of Old Kane Springs Road where they flowed into the San Sebastian Marsh area. Carrizo Wash was really tore up!
