This is an excellent example of tectonic plate thrusts in Anza Borrego State Park, and you will find this scene shortly after passing the trailhead for the Palm Canyon Hike. It's a 3-mile hike roundtrip. But much of it is not on a flat sandy path. The path is narrow in some places. In others, it vanishes, forcing you to look for footprints on smooth stone to find your way.
You will also, if you are lucky like we were, spot Big Horn sheep on the ridges. Entire families of Big Horn sheep peeking down at you. Plus we saw costa hummingbirds and more sphinx moth caterpillars, along with a wide assortment of beautiful desert wildflowers in bloom for as far as the eye can see.
