Will this be your first time to visit Borrego Springs and Anza Borrego Desert State Park?

If you have never been you will be awed by the beauty and diversity of America's largest desert state park.

Although it maybe ill titled and not historically accurate I found this video very interesting.

The "Impossible Railroad" was completed on November 15, 1919, by John D. Spreckels at the approximate cost of 18 million dollars.

Goat Canyon railroad trestle considered the tallest curved wooden trestle in the world at 180 feet tall and 750 feet across.
