Yuma To San Luis Obispo

The Anza colonizing expedition route from Yuma to San Gabriel Mission through the Imperial Valley and Borrego Desert was the major challenge of the trip. Anza and Garces had previously traveled the route on their exploratory journey two years before. The availability of water, forage, and firewood were key ingredients for a successful expedition.
