Not to be confused with Palm Springs, the Palm Spring marker in Anza Borrego Desert is the first recorded palm oasis in California. It was used for years as a stopping point for the Butterfield Stageline and even saw the likes of Kit Carson.
Anza Borrego Desert is California’s largest state park where temperatures can be in the triple digits year-round. The park covers 600,000 acres of desert, including badlands, palm canyons, rock formations, slot canyons, wildflower displays and cactus.
Geologists and paleontologists believe this parched desert was once underwater, and home to fish, sea turtles, and sharks. Remnants of its former life can be found, including seashell fossils and wild rock formations.
