Just south-east of Temecula you will find Palomar Mountain State Park. I usually find a host of critters (furred and feathered) there. East of Temecula, towards Palm Springs, you will find a number of places to photograph. And of course there is the Salton Sea, which I have been to a number of times. Lots of birds there, and the predators that chase them. It is one of my favorite places to photograph Burrowing Owls. If you do decide to visit the Salton Sea swing through Borrego Springs and check on the Desert Bighorns.
Above all…enjoy the trip!
