TRAIL DESCRIPTION:
An easy trail but lots of soft sand.

LOGISTICS:
We will meet at camp grounds at 9:00 Saturday morning. Each vehicle needs a vehicle inspection and all drivers and passengers must complete a waiver of liability. Have sufficient gas for the trip and bring a lunch.

The plan is to travel to Fonts point. Take pictures. Travel to Vista Del Malpas. Take pictures.
Then wander around until we find our way back to a highway somewhere.
If need be we can gas up in Borrego Springs before heading back to camp.
We fully expect to be back in camp early.
