Buildings with ivy and plants climbing over their walls always fascinated me. Haunted castles, romantic villas . . . certainly far from my quoitidian life!
Something to reflect as you follow the curve the road. Better to see the reflection than reflect later on, why did I have to answer my phone whilst driving???
Someone had an accident on a trail. Medivac helicopters, firemen, police, and ambulances made this hike a bit more exciting than usual. Add to this it was sunset, and it was rather surprising to turn the corner to see this.
The rains have begun to turn our dreary California landscape into a bright green. This little puddle is now a pond.
While a lot of California is considered to be “out of the drought”, where I live, we are still considered to be in drought conditions. We have more storms on the way, which will help with our drought, but the aquifers are still below normal levels. Unless California considers continuing stringent water control and water storage problems, these rains will mean nothing if we have little rain in the years to come.
