IMG_0520 In case you missed the last Whitney clinic at REI, our local outfitters at Adventure 16 will be holding their version in the West LA store on Friday, February 5th. Whitney expert Kurt Wedberg will be leading the informational session in store, and they’ll have permit applications on hand just in case you get extra inspired.

If the desert’s more your thing, be sure to head back on February 24th, when they’ll be serving up wine, cheese, and popcorn and screening three short films showing off the beauty of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

Anza-Borrego is one of my favorite areas in all of California, and it’s definitely worth a visit – especially during the spring blooms. See below for a few recommended hikes in the area.

Both events start at 7PM and are free of charge.

Recommended Anza-Borrego hikes:
Borrego Palm Canyon
Ghost Mountain
Calcite Mine and The Slot
Hellhole Canyon
