Springtime at Oak Glen, part 1

My visit to Oak Glen, up the mountainside from Yucaipa in Southern California, this past Monday (a national holiday so I had the day off work), was prompted by a desire to see the area in springtime. I headed directly to my favorite place, the Wildland’s Conservancy nature trails at Los Rios Rancho. I shouldn’t have been surprised in seeing the water level so low in the little lakes, but I was, and it made me sad. It’s been blisteringly hot and we’ve had no rain. In spite of that, the hills were green, apple trees in bloom, wildflowers adding a splash of color… just beautiful. Much serenity is to be gathered in nature. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

      Honestly the most peaceful place… well, maybe without the rattler!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
