The Anza-Borrego Desert is a land of many faces, where the twists and turns of each canyon reveal a unique charm and beauty. From the colorful Borrego badlands east of Borrego Springs to the forested slopes of the Laguna mountains, and the desert wildflower blooms that follow the rains of winter, diverse plants and animals have adapted to many different life zones.   The desert is a harsh land, but life is everywhere.
