In a previous post, I wrote about microclimates in the desert. Here is a place that is a great example of how it changes from just a couple steps. Below you see water with the reeds but a walk around the springs will change completely into a dry desert. It is shocking see a major landscape change.
All these animals have free range of the park and they are out there for your viewing pleasure. There's a nice trail behind the brick cabin that goes behind the springs. I love this park for the groupings of palm trees all over the place....you actually feel like you are some place else. Happy adventures wherever you may be!
