Rancho Los Alamitos

If you have an afternoon, no plans, and you happen to be in Long Beach, I have a secret to tell you: There is an old ranch, with gardens, on the top of a hill, in a gated community, right next to the university, with free admission. That's right, something free! With free parking! Just drive up to the gate (Palo Verde & E State University Drive), talk to a really polite and helpful gate attendant, and drive on up to Rancho Los Alamitos, where a couple hours of quaint gardens and Ranch-house-touring awaits! To be honest, I don't know what's inside the Ranch House. When I visited I was in a more outdoorsy mood. Here are some of the things I saw:

  2. Agreed. This place looks wonderful, and your photos are lovely. I love the large roots too, but the photo underneath it is my favorite. Gorgeous work.

    1. I've been getting good feedback on the second photo! I was a bit surprised though, I expected people not to like that one as much.

      Anyway, thanks! I love hearing people's opinions, it keeps me motivated.
