Tag: Mount Clef
Another photography film panorama, this time with only two images. Mount Clef is not really high – probably only a few hundred feet off the valley floor. Where I live, it is a series of valleys, located within the first mountain range in from the Pacific. Nonetheless, the hike up Mount Clef provides views around, out to sea, and into the deeper valley – the Santa Rosa Valley – behind the ridge. Right now, it’s rattlesnake season, so one treads carefully, on the trails, and looking around as you walk. Dogs are tightly on leash, if you have any brains.
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.
Taken along one of the trails in a local open space, Mount Clef in the distance. You can see how dry it is in SoCal after 5 years of drought. Rain is predicted next week, but I doubt it will show up. Wah.
I haven’t been out for a hike in Wildwood of late – and in a hurry to do while the spring blooms last!
