Falls, Flowers & Green

After our lovely family visit in San Diego we took off March 15 flying out toward Ramona, and glimpsed this waterfall amid that arid landscape.

A little over 13 miles past Ramona was this winding rapids.

Then we passed near the little mountain town of Julian for our first aerial perspective of this popular area where we’ve sampled spectacular apple pies and pioneer ambiance.

In case you hadn’t already guessed, we were headed for Borrego to see if there was a wildflower bloom from the Spring rains.

While we did see many hints of color sprinkled around the valley, this was the most densely blooming little area. Places we’d seen more blooming in prior flights were bland that day. But the desert has many other charms year ’round.

Still, it was refreshing an hour or so later to see the green fields of home.
