Squeezing through Siltstone: Slot Canyons in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

Palm Wash Slot Canyons - This trail is located just inside the state park boundary. Palm Wash is a shallow drainage through arid and dusty hills. It has three main forks (South, Middle, North) and some tributaries which form short slot sections. Picture taken in the Middle Fork of Palm Wash Slot Canyon in July 2014.
