In downtown San Diego is Balboa Park which that receives over 1/2 million visitors every year and contains a zoo, 14 museums, several gardens, and dozens of restaurants. This massive city park (America’s largest) was created in 1835 making it one of our nations oldest public recreation areas.
One evening on our trip, Erin took us to the park to show us around and one of the spots we visited was the Old Cactus Garden. I saw plants I had never seen before – in fact, some of them looked like drawings from Dr. Seuss books. Then I found out from Erin that Theodor S. Geisel (Dr. Seuss) lived in San Diego and was inspired by some of the whacky cactus plants in the park.
I focused my camera on getting a closeup perspective of the prickly plants.
