2014 Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari at Anza-Borrego and Truckhaven!

The opening day and night at the 2014 Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari brought high winds and heavy overcast. On Friday, the four-wheelers stayed closer to camp and gathered at the Ocotillo Wells 4x4 Off-Road Training Area for some preliminary challenges.

Saturday morning at dawn: clouds overhead without the heavy wind. The families mustered their campsite breakfasts and prepared for a long day of fun in the desert! By the afternoon, heavily gusting wind returned with vigor.

The Saturday desert run is a Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari tradition! As drivers gather early for the 2014 Saturday outing, the talk turns to tires and equipment. 4x4s will get tested thoroughly on this classic run.

The 2014 Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari offered a variety of family recreation. The Saturday night raffle is famous, and special attention focuses on children, Veterans and charities. The TDS four-wheel drive club from San Diego County has earned a wide reputation for its organizational ability around this successful annual event!
