Pines at Oak Glen

After looking at old pictures I’d taken at Oak Glen, I suddenly got the urge for an in-person view. I tossed myself in my little pickup truck and headed onto the freeway. An hour or so later I was on the mountain, with countless others who obviously had the same urge. It seems craft fairs […]

Oak Glen with Kat

(16 photos in gallery) Kat took an afternoon off work last week to join me in a spontaneous visit to Oak Glen, with its clear mountain air offering some of the best medicine for any ailment! We first had lunch at a favorite spot, (Riley’s Farm) Hawk’s Head Publick House, with its Revolutionary War era […]

Tahquitz Canyon Texter

Hiking up Tahquitz Canyon in Palm Springs, surrounded by cliffs, trail climbing at a pretty stiff pace, water gurgling in the stream down below, brisk, fresh air, and then I see the red hat on this gal sitting on the large boulder (photo opp!)…. it’s not until I view on the computer that I notice she’s texting. Perhaps she’s sharing the beauty of this […]

Snow Up Top, Palms Down Below

Another beautiful scene from Palm Springs, just west of downtown! A day or two after I left, a really cold storm blew into Southern California and put a lot more snow on the mountains. While I missed that photo opportunity, I’m glad my hikes weren’t interrupted with freezing weather! ~SueBee

Mighty Trees

Went camping in Big Bear with Cam and his wonderful family a little while back…what a fantastic trip, and an absolutely stunning place to camp! We stayed at Hanna Flats Campground, right in the middle of the forest…massive trees surrounding us, and tons of hiking trails to explore. I couldn’t help taking several pics of […]

“Mountains Viewed from Hope Rock”

Stunning view of the San Gabriel Mountains from Hope Rock (photo below), on a trail above Descanso Garden‘s Boddy House in La Canada Flintridge, starting point of the Angeles Crest Highway. Having grown up in La Crescenta (next town to the west), this area is my childhood stomping grounds…. and what stomping grounds they were! ~SueBee (photos […]

“On a Clear Day You Can See Forever”

In Southern California today, that expression was definitely true. It was far too beautiful to stay inside, so I hopped in the truck and ended up at the mountain town of Oak Glen. Now past apple season, the crowds were gone, the beauty remained. ~SueBee (photo by SueBee)

Paradise beckons yet again!

Who needs Walden Pond? I’ve got Oak Glen Preserve within an hour’s drive. I’m hooked on that place… completely and utterly addicted. We Southern Californians often hear how others are envious of our weather with its near-continual sunshine and mild temps. People move here in droves after watching the Rose Parade each New Year’s Day, after […]

Walkin’ down a country road…

Kat and I headed out to San Bernardino County two weeks ago, inspired by a friend’s post on Facebook. Within an hour’s drive, we arrived in paradise! Yes, the mountain village of Oak Glen, an apple growing center of Southern California, up the mountainside above Yucaipa. I can’t believe I’ve lived so many years in […]

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
