We just returned from 10 days of camping, hiking and kayaking in beautiful Glacier and Waterton National Parks.

Anza Borrego is Californias largest state park encompassing more than 600,000 acres and home to 50 or more species of flora and fauna including the parks namesake the Bighorn Sheep (Borrego is Spanish for sheep).
