Santa Barbara Botanic Garden

There is so much going on along the coast, the pier and State Street that it is easy to neglect the inland beauty of Santa Barbara.

Most visitors stop by the Mission.

But it is not much further to get to the Botanic Garden.

All natural, all nature, holiday garland.

Inspiration Point in the distance.

Shady spots along the way.

Coast Redwood - Sequoia sempervirens

In addition to the trails, there is a tea house, gift shop and succulents for sale.

Before you leave, walk across the parking lot, cross the street, hike up the short trail and take one last look --- at the city and Pacific Ocean spread out below.
