A sabre-toothed tiger joined mammoths, sloths, camels, horses and other earlier inhabitants of the Anza-Borrego desert area --
at the various acreages owned by Galleta Meadows --
Amidst many, many gorgeous flowers blooming on the desert floor. Like these blossoms on a cholla cactus that ranged in color from year to peach to pink!
Or this magnificent ocotillo that was only one of hundreds in bloom on the hillsides!
