McConnell Arboretum

On the way to Redding, CA we stopped at the McConnell Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. What a disappointment! It looked more like late fall than early spring. Few plants were flowering or even emerging; many looked near death. Labelling was very poor and there were no guide booklets or maps to be found. It’s unfortunate because the setting is very nice, adjacent to the Sacramento River. Then, we were rear-ended at a stop light just after exiting the garden (but with virtually no visible damage to our car).
