CHL No. 673 San Gregorio - San Diego


NO. 673 SAN GREGORIO - Somewhere in this narrow valley, perhaps on this very spot, the Anza Expeditions of 1774 and 1775 made their camps. Water for the 240 people and over 800 head of stock on the 1775 march was obtained from a series of wells, deeper than the height of a man, dug into the sandy bottom of the wash.

***To get to this landmark, we followed the location/directions as written in the Guide Book. However, Donald Laird has found a much easier route. He approached it from the south. From Borrego Springs Road, head north on Fletcher Road. Drive through the Borrego Air Ranch Airport. Continue heading north on Fletcher Road past Borrego Air Ranch Road. A regular car can make the drive using this route
