Join Brian and Susie Jones on a strenuous 3-mile round trip hike up Cool Canyon.  We'll hike up some dry waterfalls in the higher country where the flora is different from that of the desert floor and observe some of the many lizards that live there (provided we have warm weather).  Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the intersection of County Highway S-2 and the first dirt road to the west (near mile marker 22), one-half mile south of the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park® boundary sign just beyond Shelter Valley.  Approximate drive time is 45 minutes from ABDSP Visitor Center.  Four-wheel drive not required.  Hike is limited to 15 people.  Please sign up at the Visitor Center.  Bring water, a hat, snacks, hiking sticks (optional), and wear sturdy hiking shoes.
