|Iguanas at Shadow Ridge|
. . . well actually Ramona . . that is where we are staying . .. which is about 50 miles east of San Diego. We traveled from Palm Springs, after checking on our spot at Shadow Ridge . . . .the iguanas are doing just fine.
We were driving along Indian Canyon Road yesterday and I spied this scene which to me looked light something you would see in Europe . . . screeech . . stop and take this photo . . . . oops in the wrong lane of traffic so came back this morning to catch it in the morning light. I thought it was breathtaking.
Took Scenic Highway 74 . . . Brenda still has white knuckles . . . see that little black ribbon . . .. well we travelled that to the peak which was about 11 miles sorta straight up . . . steep enough that there is a sign telling you to turn off your air conditioning so that your vehicle doesn’t overheat. Trust me, I have never seen that sign in the Rocky Mountains in Canada.
|The valley below|
The oasis of green at the bottom of the valley is Palm Springs/Palm Desert and a whole lot of other communities that just sorta run into each other. Just beautiful . . . . . . could spend a lot more time there.
Did I mention that it was 78 degrees today . . . yesssssssss. Tomorrow off to walk the ocean wall at La Jolla and then go and see the USS Midway.
Life is good.
