For these “gardens” expect wild native areas, not manicured park-like displays. This list offers an overview of what you can see between a 1,000 foot and 10,000 foot range in elevation, from chaparral to alpine meadows (in this county) plus some bonus areas worth a day trip. Obviously the season will have a lot to do with where you can go, but don’t dismiss visiting even in an “off” season. There are always interesting things to find.
