Anyway, after reading about the park, my husband and I decided hike there this past weekend. The park is easy to get to, only costs $3 for parking (I did see a little bit of on-street parking if you don’t want to pay the fee), and is absolutely gorgeous. I’d read online that a hike there is like going through several different climate zones. They weren’t wrong. We spent about two hours there and we saw a lot of cool stuff along the way.
|These geese look like they were just chilling but they|
were pretty noisy.
|A big, beautiful tree.|
|There was a lot of signage, but I never saw one|
for this plant, which is abundant. Never
figured out what it is.
|So many fuzzies that it almost looked|
|An old fire hydrant (?), nearly camouflaged by|
dead palm fronds.
|After so many years living in desert climates,|
I've come to greatly enjoy cacti in its many varieties.
|Lovely little cactus flowers.|
|My favorite photo of the day.|
|Amongst all the beauty, an ugly little bog.|
|A smokestack (?) attached to nothing.|
I was very impressed by the park. I had a delightful time & I'm looking forward to frequent visits.
