Murals of the Tijuana River Valley

The Tijuana River Valley is a remarkable place to explore. Located along the U.S.-Mexico border, it’s a perfect place for nature lovers, artists, activists and travelers.

I’ve already written about many of the sights: Suzie’s Farms, the Tijuana River Valley Regional Park, San Diego Beach Rides, the Llama and the Sanitation Plant.

It’s a serene place to explore on a weekend.

I also found these murals along Hollister Street. Called Utopia Arcadia and created around 1999 by Robin Brailsford Studio, they depict historic landscapes set within a fence of an equestrian bridge.

The scenes show the farms that once populated this area and the utopian agricultural community in San Ysidro:

    I’ve not been in years but I hope its still as lovely. That horse-backriding, perhaps with a take along picnic – would make a lovely, scenic & quiet day, I’m thinking:)

    It was such a serene place — right in the middle of two sprawling urban areas. Truly a great place.
