Border Field State Park

The Border Field State Park is as far South and West one can be in the continental United States. We visited it twice within one week. The first time was extremely fun, but the second time we found ourselves in the midst of mosquito hell!

The first time we headed straight for the beach and from there we headed South to the United States/Mexican boarder. The second time we parked further North forcing us to walk through the Tijuana river wash area. The trails through the wash are actually pretty cool. We were always buried in a canopy of trees and the trail is narrowly walled by all sorts of plant life. The trail floor is sand mixed with occasional debris which I assume washed in from Tijuana when the water was high. If I were going to do it again I'd spray tons of Off (mosquito repellent) on my body parts. There were tons of mosquitos!

Here is a combination of pics from both visits:

Here's a nice view of the Plaza de Toros Monumental, aka The Tijuana Bullring, located just South of the US/Mexican boarder.

Here's Clarita and Daniel, my nephew, and a father and his son spending a day at the Tijuana beach.

La Migra!
