Try walking this easy trail (named in honor of a former Anza-Borrego park supervisor) in the early morning or in late afternoon, when warm-tinted sunlight and long shadows soften the landscape. At this higher and often windswept locale, the desert vegetation is sparse but varied, with most varieties of indigenous cactus represented. The best attraction along the trail, though, is the marvelous view from the two overlook points. Dominating the scene below, to the south, is Mescal Bajada, a vast, sloping sheet of alluvial deposits. The stark Pinyon Mountains, the source of the deposits, rise in the background. You can easily imagine the processes that produced this landscape: Wind and water erosion, aided by alternating hot and cold temperatures, tear at the face of the Pinyon Mountains, opening up ravines and canyons. Great loads of sand and boulders wash out of these openings during floods and build alluvial fans. The fans coalesce to form a sloping skirt (or bajada) extending outward from the base of the mountains.
