One Fine Day at Balboa Park

Balboa Park is one of the places I frequent whenever I spend my "me-alone-" time! Aside from Torrey Pines, this is the other place where I go to whenever I wanted to relax and feel rejuvenated by the beauty of nature around us. Unlike Torrey Pines though, which is more of a natural park, Balboa Park is the nation's largest cultural park. It is home to 15 major museums, my favorite being the San Diego Natural History Museum where I love to learn more about the history of our natural world. Aside from museums, it is home to major art, music and theater venues, and the world famous San Diego Zoo. It is also home to several beautiful gardens, my favorite being the Desert Garden. Perhaps, my love for the desert all started here in Balboa Park. Whenever I wanted to photograph butterflies, hummingbirds, and other birds that are not often seen along the coast, I would go to Balboa Park. Here are some pictures one fine day I spent at Balboa Park just relaxing.
The very last flower intrigued me so much because it is one stem, one plant, yet two colors! It's yellow when it is young, then gets dots of red as it gets older, and becomes beautiful red. For more information about Balboa Park, you can visit the park's site here
