Grapevine Canyon Drive Now Online

The latest Weekend Driver column, Grape Drive in the Desert, is now online. And it couldn’t be timelier, with lots of folks heading out there to look at the flowers. I took a sharp, brand-new Nissan Xterra with the off-road package up Grapevine Canyon in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. A fantastic trip through a rugged, remote portion of Southern California (is there anything else in the desert?).

For this story, I decided to forgo my usual preparation — web searches, map unfolding, book opening, etc., and just do what a lot of you do, gas up the car and head out. You do have to have some idea of where you want to go, so I pointed the Xterra toward the visitor center at the Anza Borrego Desert State Park. There, I asked one of the volunteers to pick me a trip. And that’s what I took.

Be sure to check it out.

And don’t forget to read my review on the Xterra. Thanks to the good folks at Nissan for supplying the vehicle.
