Back home to Cali (from AZ) for a Funeral and the day following my uncles Celebration of his Life... we made a visit 1/21/12 and was AMAZED... I had no idea all these years the Preserve was so many miles long of PERFECTION of Nature. I took my 17 year old son (his 1st time) and he was also in Awe of the Surrounding Beauty and Nature.
I thank you for parks like this that bring a connection to Nature, to Family, to the Camera.
We Captured some AMAZING Pictures as well.
** This Preserve is for the "Romantic"... the "Family"... the "Photographer"... the "Teenager"... the "Elderly"... the "ENTIRE HUMAN RACE"... I hope it brings you as much JOY and SMILES and as many "AWE's" as it brought us on this Drive/Walk... On a day after a Funeral... it ReVives the Meaning of LIFE and LIVING IT TODAY !!! **
This is a remarkable place that I wish we had back home. You can walk around and just view all the birds, some even close up. You must go if you love what mother nature has to offer. The reserve is free so you have to check it out.
Perfect place for a relaxing walk or and energetic power walk. Great they have preserved this getaway place from the So. Cal freeway life! Worth driving to, and especially great if you are staying at the Marriott Suites across the street!
