See the Baja peninsula and Southern California through the eyes of six accomplished photographers from Mexico and the United States. Intriguing geology, unusual climate patterns, and dramatic weather have created an astounding diversity of life that adapts in different ways, survives, and thrives. Over eighty stunning photographs display the amazing consequences of these natural forces.

The images are complemented by relevant artifacts, hands-on demonstrations and live exhibits.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.—Marcel Proust
