Oak Glen After The El Dorado Fire, part 2

Here are a few more scenes from my recent visit to Oak Glen, as I checked out the results of the wildfires. You’ll notice pretty wildflowers growing alongside the road, a quintessential apple worm hole, red apples not picked in time, and other pictures that make us thankful the fires were stopped. It’s such a […]

Fire Retardant at Oak Glen

Today’s Foto Fix shows how well the pink fire retardant dropped by fire fighting airplanes works. This picture was taken at Oak Glen, a beautiful area impacted by both the Apple Fire and the El Dorado Fire in recent months. ~SueBee

Oak Glen After The El Dorado Fire

Curious about the damage caused to Oak Glen from the El Dorado Fire, I decided to drive up there this morning. Before heading out, I made sure roads were open and visitors allowed. Side note to those not living in Southern California… this fire was started by humans setting off a smoke bomb in dry […]

It Snowed!

Southern California’s mountains are snow-covered and beautiful thanks to a Thanksgiving Day storm! Therefore, I drove to Oak Glen yesterday to get some pictures, oblivious to the thought that crowds might greet me. With the first snow of the season bringing lots of excitement, naturally every single resident of the area wants to experience it […]

Today in Oak Glen

I took a nice break today and visited a favorite mile-high place, Oak Glen, home to apple orchards and fresh mountain air. I hoped for some colorful fall leaves and cooler temps. I got my wish, although, the wind blowing the cooler temps made it feel downright cold! It’s hard to go from mid-90s one […]

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, […]

A Weekday at Oak Glen

In early October, I had a day off work and decided to drive the hour or so up to Oak Glen. I’d hoped too see some changing leaves for Autumn, and also smaller crowds. Oak Glen has been promoted extensively in the past year or two, making it packed with people and losing some of […]

Pond at Oak Glen

Today’s Foto Fix was taken a few weeks ago at Oak Glen. I’d hoped to see some fall colors, but the weather hadn’t yet allowed that to happen. Maybe I’ll take another drive up there this month… fingers crossed for cooler days! ~SueBee

Changing of the Leaf

I drove up the mountain from Yucaipa to Oak Glen, hoping to find a bit of fall color… I found it, a bit, as evidenced by this picture. I’m guessing our hot weather hasn’t been what the trees need to give us that beautiful splash of color we adore. Maybe next month… ~SueBee

Autumn in Oak Glen

(14 photos) My spontaneous drive to Oak Glen, near Yucaipa, last Sunday resulted in mingling with crowds of people, but as evidenced by these pictures, I found some quiet space, too. It’s so pretty there in the fall, and the various ranches have all sorts of festivals celebrating apple picking season. ~SueBee

Help! It Fell Down and Can’t Get Back Up

Taking a partial line from an annoying (aren’t they all?) commercial here in the U.S. featuring a lady who fell on the floor but was saved due to the button she wore around her neck…. The signs of a good commercial is if it sticks in your head. Jingles from products sold on TV in […]

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 […]

It rained (sprinkled)!

We had a bit of rain here in Southern California this morning, sprinkles if you wish to be exact, but that, combined with cooler temps, makes me reminisce. I therefore dug into my older photos and came up with this rained-upon red rose. I took this picture in front of Hawk’s Head Tavern, Oak Glen, […]

Half Empty, Half Full

This wine glass, or the work week, half done or not? I’ll look to the bright side of the work week and say it’s nearly half done. For the wine, well, the glass is still half full and at the time I was relaxed, enjoying myself. This photo was taken at Oak Glen outside of […]

Afternoon on the Mountain, Oak Glen

I realized yesterday while starting a few projects in my craft room that I hadn’t been to Oak Glen for some time, so I put aside the projects and hopped in my little truck. The 1 and a 1/4 hour drive was pleasant. I went straight away to a favorite spot, Snow Line, for coffee […]

Coffee’s On

With all the storms we’ve had this past week or two in California, and what seems like endless rain, snow storms, blizzards, and ice, I thought this an inviting picture for today’s Foto Fix. Now if only my roof wasn’t leaking so I could enjoy that nice cup of coffee ~SueBee

Oak Glen with Snow, part 2

(9 photos) Continuing from my previous post, this gallery includes more photos taken at Oak Glen when Kat and I made a spontaneous visit earlier this week. Oak Glen is my “go to” relaxation place for those times I need to get away for a few hours, breathe fresh mountain air, listen to the soothing sounds of […]

Oak Glen with Snow, part 1

(10 photos) Kat and I both have days off work this week (yippee!) and took a spontaneous drive to Oak Glen yesterday. While we noticed plenty of snow on the high mountains the next range over from Oak Glen, we didn’t expect to see snow on the ground in Oak Glen. It was a wonderful […]

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
