Anza Borrego

i went to anza borrego today to look at what is locally called 'the bloom.' my SFSU old office-mate, a plant chemist, would rhapsodize about anza borrego in the spring. as promised, it was quite beautiful. click the picture the whole set. the pictures don't convey the silence and space. i was lying in the car after eating an apple, spacing out, when i caught an irregular motion out of the corner of my eye. it was the first of a long series of butterflies that were flying up the creek bed i was in. it was wonderful. it made me wish i had a camp cot. i wasn't about to lie on the ground, with all the ants that i saw and scorpions and snakes that i didn't see. nature's fine, to a degree.
