Route Description:
The mud cave network in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park may be one of the largest in the world. At least 22 caves have been counted, some up to 1,000 feet long and 80 feet high. Thousands of people go to Anza Borrego to explore the caves each year, even organized Boy Scout Troops. Flashlights / headlamps and old clothing needed. Some may prefer to wear coveralls. Helmets are not necessary but ceilings get low. Not recommended for those susceptible claustrophobia.

Count me and Ben in on this one -

FYI, you have both 10/21 and 10/22 as dates for this run...also, I think, where possible, we should put expected time of return / length of run in the info to help folks decide...
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear really bright, until they start talking

Fixed the date issue. We'll update all run threads with expected run times and distances.

Please sign me up.
Always wanted to check out the caves but previously I was out there solo and didn't feel comfortable entering the caves.
I was worried about running into Morlocks and/or Sleestaks.
