For some reason my pictures are super huge, if they are too big for your liking click thishttp://sturgeonadventures.blogspot.com/2015/01/loop-and-olla-wash.html to the blog I posted them on. Any advice on how to shrink them? I uploaded them to the blog and copy and pasted here.

It was time for another adventure to the Anza Borrego Desert. This time my Bro had some time off, (or so I thought) so we headed into Fish Creek Wash. We go a bit of a late start and it started to get dark by the time we hit the dirt. This was his first adventure to ABDSP and his first XTC adventure with his Truck Camper.





















We were going to head into Olla Wash but it got pretty dark so we set up camp in Loop Wash.





It was pretty cool having 2 hard sided shelters as the wind the next day had some pretty strong gusts.



We found a pretty cool cave in the area



I thought this might be some petrified scat smile










My bro thought we had landed on Mars



Rock solid fossils





the high and dry reef



Showing my niece around the place



Brett leading the group










Crumbling Reef



All of us hanging out flying kites, my bro had his hands full with his 2 and 1 year old!





Next generation of Desert enthusiasts wink





This was a nice place to stop and use the natural environment to go ahead and clean my solar panels. It was hard to believe this is the middle of winter in southern california and it was 72 and perfect.



It sucks being so far out and having cell phone reception because my bro got called into work and had to leave the party early upset



We continued on into Olla Wash to explore the peace and solitude of ABDSP



This campsite will do, Free and WAY out there, just the way we like it.



If you are into geology you will love Olla Wash.

I guess all the ollas are gone, but there are a few Metates around



Did I say it was the middle of winter? Brett finally figured out the perfect desert attire



He still has a lot of growing up to do



It was nice to see some color on the ocotillos








I love this pic smile



We lost Brett for a while and found him napping in a small alcove

I spy with my little eye

We just can't get enough of this place smile







concretion station












Tile rummy anyone?








Team Sturgeon : Hope you enjoyed the tour

Nice trip, Nolan. You guys sure like Fish Creek! I'm a fan of your large pics especially your last post. Too hard to see and too much to miss on the smaller ones. Tom

Agree with Tom..... keep the photos super-sized. The ocotillo photo is outstanding, it would be a good entry in the ABDSP annual photo contest. Nice trip. - Jim

Neat trip photos. Need to head out there again. Looks like you all had a great time! That whole area out there is a fossil trove. Marine fossils from the now extinct Imperial Sea. Geology play ground no kidding!
Old but neat brief article of the complex history of the area
