Anza Borrego and More

As I’ve said to Kay, there’s more to Anza Borrego than first greets the eyes as you traverse the sinuous 11-mile descent along Montezuma Valley Road into the remote desert valley. Once there, you’ll discover a variety of restaurants and shops as well as other amenities essential for a positive experience. Two great places to eat are Jilberto’s and Kendal Cafe, great food and value. Long a haven for snowbirders from the harsh winters of North America, this area was not overlooked by industrious developers with pockets of homes, tennis courts, golf courses and resorts scattered around the valley, evident as we toured by vehicle and bike. Hidden in the desert terrain like an oasis are modern homes with designs right out of the pages of Architectural Digest. The luck of good weather during this trip thus far, ended during our first day in Anza Borrego with wind, cold and light sprinkles. Good time to check out the local shops and markets, and for a drive about; even managed a short hike within the state park. For me, as you would expect, the attractions of this region are the outdoor activities, be it biking, hiking or birding. There is also beauty here if one looks for it.
