Safari Park Visit

Friday was the day that the new owners of our Nightcrest house scheduled their building inspection, window repairs and the like. In order to be out of their way, we went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for the day. Aunt Helen has been generous giving us passes to the park most of the years we’ve been here in Temecula, and we’ve used them a lot.

Yes, the animals are important, but we have to look at the maps!

We should go there!

Off we go!

You would think that after six years, we would have seen everything. Not so. There is an entire section devoted to native California plant life on a ridge overlooking the park that we’d never been to.

California is not naturally a lush region. Water all needs to be carefully managed, either from the Sierra snowpacks or imported from rivers originating in the Rockies. Native plants are much more like the cartoon cacti seen above.

Off we go!

Oh, and we’ll check out the animals, too. While we’re here.

    It was. Even better day today — biking on Temecula’s biking trails. News at 11.
