An easy trail but lots of soft sand.

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.
