We left I-8 at El Centro, and drove north on CA111, which took us up the Imperial Valley to the southern tip of the Salton Sea, where we picked up CA78, which took us through the Anza-Borrego desert and up into the Palomar Mountains. The views along this route as we climbed were quite spectacular. We were coming in ahead of a major Pacific winter storm system that would result in snow in the mountains, so our timing was critical.
