Hi Lawrence,

Thanks so much for stopping by, and taking the time to comment! And thanks for the work you are doing to preserve the beauty and solitude of Anza-Borrego.

I'm not familiar with Oriflamme Canyon, but I did check it out on the web - looks like I'll need to explore it one of these days. Sounds like the place a friend of mine explored and recommended a while back.

The photo was taken in the Thimble Trail area (off S22), looking across to Villager Peak and Rabbit Peak. It was spectacular with the fresh snow.

I love going out to Anza-Borrego for little mini-backpack trips to get away from the city. Places like Anza-Borrego and Chaco Canyon are definitely good for my soul.

Beautiful thoughts on the value of silence! From the photo I'm going to guess that you were somewhere around Oriflamme Canyon, maybe on the PCT? There are many places in Anza-Borrego where you can experience this silence -- slot canyons and lonely mountain tops.

Follow this link to see a spot near Anza-Borrego where several groups hope to bring the silence back, after 40 years of motorized onslaught.
