Camping and Hiking relief - Carlee's Borrego Springs, CA








While hiking and camping with family in Anza Borrego between X-mas and New Years my Aunt suggested we stop in at Carlee's for lunch and a drink.  Me being me, I ordered the drink pictured above.

Carlee's take on the Bloody Mary is simple.  Not a ton of flash and pizazz, but just a good down to earth simple libation that hit the spot after a day of hiking.  While it won't win any prizes or finish top in my ratings, there is something to be said for it's simplicity.

Borrego Springs doesn't have a lot of things that other towns may have.  There is no McD's, not even a Starbucks or a Subway.  What it does have is residence in the middle of a beautiful area, a simple charm, and exactly what you need without a ton of frills.  Oh, and they have Carlee's, and judging by the size of the crowd there on the day we visited, that is a very good thing to have.
