My buddy @timngo.photography and I hadn’t photographed the milky for a while so we figured it was time. We decided to look for the elusive raptors at Anza Borrego we missed the last time we were here and boy was it an adventure. Took a wrong turn on a dirt trail and our car got stuck in the sand. As we tried to get out, we made it worse and dug deeper. Figuring that the milky would not wait for us, we decided to stop trying and instead continue on the trail to take pictures and deal with the problem when we got back. We ended up having to get winched out in the morning.
At the end of all this my takeaway was to add the following to my wish list: 4x4, or two wood planks.
