Chaparral is the shrubland that blankets our hillsides and valleys, from desert to coast. We don't always recognize its beauty and its value, but that makes it ripe for exploration. We start where desert vegetation gives way to chaparral near Anza Borrego Desert, then follow it to the coast at Torrey Pines State Reserve.
