Elephant Knees Butte, Anza Borrego

Elephant Knees Butte, Anza Borrego

Despite the heat, on this day I went out to Anza Borrego with a friend. Originally the plan was to drive up Fish Creek Wash and then hike to the wind caves and photograph that under the milky way. However when we got there, I couldn't find a good composition with the caves despite spending quite a bit of time exploring both inside and out. So instead I switched gears and decided to focus on the nearby Elephant Knees butte that was due south and aligned perfectly with the core.

In case you were wondering, the high was 110 in Borrego Springs. When we started the hike it was 106F and I can't say I recommend doing that. But it wasn't as bad as I feared. We still guzzled a ton of water even though the hike was very short.
