Default Mud caves

Hi Everyone
I just got over my nasty nasty nasty cold / fever and I immedietely visited some mud caves in the Anza Borrego desert...Wow does anybody else LOVE mud caves?? They are so creepy and cool. My pictures didn't turn out so great because it was so dark...the caves are totally made out of mud and they were HUGE and winding and pitch dark. It was very cool.
Any other mud caves around that you all know about? My kids are wanting to go again...like right now!

I dont think I have ever heard of a mud cave. Sounds interesting though, is there no concern of collapsing while your wandering around in it?

Default Mud Caves Picture

I looked up the mud caves from Google. I got this picture from the Skychaser.net website. It has many digital pictures. They are from California. I hope you like it.

Yea, there is some concern that they may collapse...but I think only during rain.

Mud caves are so beautiful to look at. I can't believe that the rains are wearing them down so much. We had quite the rainstorm 2 nights ago. I have been here for 5 years, but this rain was heavy and windy. The house literally shook with the sound of the wind and rain. It amazing how a force like that can have so much power.

Hello Mariahdawn
How does one get to the mud caves at Anza Borrego ? Do you need 4-wheel drive?
Have been keeping track of the desert-flower/season-status for AnzaB and JoshuaTree. Love to check out your caves while we're cruzing around out there.
Cheers!

Hi bludog,

You don't need 4wd but you might have to walk the last 200 y to the trail head. Here is link with some photos and maps...

The mud caves I am talking about don't really require 4 wheel drive, unless it has been raining, there are about 22 caves and then there are the slot canyons, which are different...not as dark.
The weather is great! the flowers are in full bloom...it's a great time to visit the desert

I have never ever done anything like that and I would love too, never even heard of it, I really need to get out to that part of the country.
About how much does it cost to do something like that ? Is it guided or do they just let you loose ?
