With November rolling around, it was time once again for a hike into the Anza-Borrego wilderness to check out the world's largest wooden railroad trestle along the "Impossible Railroad", tucked away in rugged Goat Canyon.

For the full write up and photos of the absolute best hike in San Diego county, click here: http://johnandautumnsadventures.blogspot.com/2014/11/mortero-palms-to-goat-canyon-trestle.html

That's a tough little hike up Mortero Palms to the Goat Canyon area. Looks like someone laid a string of large rocks across the grating parallel to the tracks, perhaps to dissuade mountain bikes? Notice any water around the palms?

Yeah, it seems to get a little easier each time I hike out there.

The rocks are to warn folks of the large hole just up ahead from a large boulder that smashed through the grating. We didn't see any water at the palms.

Nice report.

Those must have been your groups footprints I followed today doing an out and back from Mortero Palms to the trestle.

Ha, probably!


One of the days I'll have to head up Jacumba Peak out there once I get past the palms.

I have yet to go that route, always thru the gorge it seems is where I end up going, looks like a good trip again and I like the retro style photos.

Thanks! I just use a free photo app on my phone. I leave the serious photography to my wife.
