A Day of Touring

I decided on a drive to Oak Glen this morning, wanting to have breakfast up on the mountain. It was a perfect idea; no traffic on the freeway, and clear blue sky. After breakfast, I drove to Oak Glen Preserve for a walk on the nature trails. Listening to nature was nearly a lost cause, though, due to many large family groups who felt it necessary to chatter away loudly. I wonder why people go out in nature if they never hear any of it. I hurried my pace and finally found a nice trail past the upper small lake that was sparsely populated. Birds were chirping and it was wonderful!

After leaving Oak Glen, I decided to see if I could find any cherry trees in Cherry Valley. I seem to remember my dad taking us there to pick cherries when my brother and I were small. I wasn’t lucky in my quest, however, and ended up at an old ranch with land covered in lavender bushes. It turns out I was about a month too early for bloom season, but it was great wandering around and imagining what it will smell like at the end of May.

Departing Cherry Valley, I became curious about the city of Redlands, and veered from my route home. I didn’t stay long, and didn’t even get out of the car, because I wanted to continue on my way before traffic piled up. It’s definitely a place I’ll return to, though, with it’s large assortment of Victorian era homes and a cute downtown area. ~SueBee
