Following my trip up Kern Canyon to visit Pack Saddle Cave I was invited to escape the heat and head down to Long Beach. Mostly so I could provide tech support for my Dads talk to the local Cactus club there. The meeting was at Rancho Los Alamitas, which gave me a chance to tour the gardens and take a few pictures. After the talk we were invited to tour one of the members succulent garden and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Johnny Rebs, ribs and southern food.  Then it was time to hit the road for the drive back over the Grapevine to the heat of Bakersfield.
