Earth Fair in San Diego and the California Poppy Reserve
We left Fresno and had a chance to head home (to our storage unit) for two days. Beautiful Hwy 178 took us along the Kern River, past Lake Isabella, over the Scodie Mnts, and into the Indain Wells Valley to Ridgecrest, CA. A short and sweet visit. Thanks Brendan! Stopped by the California Poppy Reserve on the way to LA for Passover. Then to San Diego for Earth Fair 2008! 60,000 people spent the day in lovely Balboa Park where over 500 exhibitors promoted Earth Day and the causes that they are passionate about. The Leave No Trace tent was packed from 10am-5pm with hundreds and hundreds of folks interested in learning more about responsible recreation in the outdoors. Now we're in Joshua Tree, CA and the spring wildflowers are peaking. We'll be at the visitor center and on the trails for the next two days. Stay tuned for lots of great Joshua Tree pictures.
We've been listening to lots of Mos Def and Fela Kuti as we cruised all over Southern CA this week.
