One Response to Hollywood and Vine street sign in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

    Hi friends –

    In the stark daylight, the sign looks so lonely. But watch as night unfolds and it’s not alone anymore until daybreak. So beautiful and peaceful.

    “This sign appears along Arroyo Hueso in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

    James A. Jasper, a San Diego County supervisor, was responsible for signing this and many other places about a mile apart along several of the dim and dusty trails threading the San Diego backcountry in 1895. The old emigrant trail from Teofulio (San Felipe) Pass southeast to Carizzo gap was marked in such a manner by Jasper’s iron signs. Directions painted on the signs gave distances to settlements and water holes. Long ago, a wag painted the words “Hollywood and Vine” on the metal plate of Jasper’s sign here, and the name (but not the original sign) stuck.”
