Happy New Year 2011! Font’s Point Sunrise

Font's Point stands among one of the lesser known "classic" photo opportunities in the American Southwest desert. The viewpoint is located in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (which is California’s largest state park) in San Diego County. It is spectacular at sunrise when the golden morning light hits the Borrego Badlands.

To reach Font’s Point I had to drive on a soft and sandy four-mile primitive road which is great with a four-wheel-drive vehicle, but in my old Toyota Corolla it was a tough proposition. In the end, the effort was well worth it.

So here’s sunrise of a new day for a new year. I wish everybody great light and wonderful travel adventures for 2011!

Happy Travels!

  1. Hey Sam - where is this in Anza-Borrego?

  2. Off of S22 and turn off at Fonts Point Wash. Drive about four miles on the sandy road will take you to the viewpoint. Inquire at the park headquarters first on road conditions. Head to the park in February/March to capture the desert wildflowers. Take care!
