Beautiful area in Balboa Park just be ready for some hills if you walk toward Zoo Place
A desert in the city? Just amazing!
The desert garden is a cool and unique place go walk around. The enormous cactus that's created a cave is really interesting. I'm glad the park has some regional horticulture.
It was a visual spectacle comprised of every cactus imaginable. Sadly a majority of the plants were dying or vandalized.
Another wonderful spot in Balboa Park. Great for seeing all kinds of desert plants.
