March 23-26th, Miles Dakin '13, Juan Mesones '13, Gabriella Rocco '14, Tenaya Storm '14 and faculty member Kyle Taylor experienced some of the most rugged yet beautiful terrain in San Diego County on an Outdoor Leadership trip to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The trip was filled with several highlights including hikes to two different waterfall oases where students were able to cool off and replenish water supplies. In addition, students participated in an overnight backpacking trip that ranged dramatically in terrain. They experienced dry sandy floors with abundant varieties of cacti and ocotillo, views of steep rocky peaks, as well as a lush riparian canyon filled with wildflowers to admire and boulders to scramble over. The trip concluded at the Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves, where students explored several different caverns with the help of their headlamps. Click here to see photos by Miles Dakin '13.
