Some local color from Anza, CA, near Temecula in Riverside county - lots of land out here! Part 2
I ran out of time on my last post and have a lot more photos to do from the tiny rural town of Anza, CA, which is in the mountains a mere 35 miles from Temecula, CA. These photos are from the biggest annual event in Anza, ANZA DAYS, which are held over the Fourth of July weekend. I took these 2 years ago. I hope you enjoy them.
Anza is a high desert mountain town with a lot of Old West flavor. A small, friendly community, people wave at their neighbors and even visitors as they drive past one another. Average height above sea level is 4,000 - 4,500 feet. It's usually about ten degrees cooler here in Anza than in Temecula.
Anza is HORSE COUNTRY!
BIG HORSE COUNTRY!
The Temecula Valley Young Marines participate in Anza Days.
In memory of Jeremy West, one of our local fallen warriors.
Anza is home to many llamas and their people!
Our friends at CDF - California Department of Forestry - are always popular participants!
