An incredibly beautiful park, to say the least.

Seen at the Tannery Arts Center.

Artist's live/work quarters.


Rooftop of the lime kilns. The map shows the kilns on the Lime Kiln Trail, but the kilns themselves are actually on the Rincon Trail below.

Amazing rock garden. The photos just do not do it justice.

Notes left throughout the garden.


Spring box.

Koi pond.

(Trail not taken.)

Ranger station.

Blackberry field.

This was one of the filming locations for The Lost Boys. The exterior was used for Grandpa's house in the movie.


Backside of house.

Perfect spot for an egg break. :)

Aww, cheer up mister rock. 

Hmmm, hope we end up where we want to be. (We did.)
