That looks like an excellent hike with lots of scrambling. Looked very rugged. I like the Every Trail with the slide show and the map. I have not seen that before. Thanks for sharing!

That looks like a great trip..I wish I could get away with carrying only 5 liters for that distance.

Do you have any trips from Borrego?

You mean Borrego Springs?

Actually, I have hiked almost every corner of the ABSP, but still have some unrealized trips and new ideas like:
Lorenzen's Peak (aka 6582)
Toro - Villager (Santa Rosa) Full Traverse,
a couple of new routes to Whale Peak (from June wash and through Bisnaga Wash)
Red Top Mountain (looks rugged)
etc.

I will share my best trips as soon as I prepare them for EveryTrail.

I have 6582 on my agenda and also Red Top (almost made it last weekend but time and itty bitty flowers distracted us). I hiked about 3/4 up Whale Peak thru Bisnaga Wash last summer..again another route on my list. Maybe over this Spring Break I will make a few of them.

Great Plan!
I have a similar idea.
Washes in this particular area are more preferable then ridges, so I am going to use Bisnaga Wash as much as I can and use Smuggler Canyon for an easy descent (hiked it to Whale Peak several times).
I am going to try it on next week.

Nice.
I just saw the iPhone app that lets you download your trip to the iPhone.
Will have to try that out.
Great pictures Alexey,

Bob
