This picture is from the my 2003 Doin’ Eighty road trip. Desert View Tower was built near Jucumba, California, in the 1920s. In the 1930s, many of the nearby rocks were carved to represent various creatures and Boulder Park was born. In the 1940s, the tower was extended to its current height.
I revisited in 2011 with my grandson. He had a great time exploring the nooks and crevices of Boulder Park. I had a great time watching him.
Trip Pic Peeks are short articles published when my world is too busy or too boring for a current events piece to be completed in time for the Sunday posting. In addition to a photo thumbnail from a completed road trip, each Peek includes a brief description of that photo plus links to the full sized photo and the trip journal it is from.
