We're happy to announce a new way to digitally experience the Anza Trail! Our 2017 Latino Heritage Intern, Lizzet Pineda, has created a series of Story Maps about the trail. We'll be rolling them out over the next few months, sharing some popular and lesser know areas that make up the Anza Expedition.
What is a Story Map?
A Story Map is an online web application created by that let you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content to share a story. We can think of no better story than all of the stories that make up the legacy of the Anza Expedition.

To help you see and experience the Expedition through children’s eyes in 1775-1776 take a look at the digital story map.
