Familiar Places

November 03, 2018  •  3 Comments

I did something today I haven't done in well over a year.  I woke up at 5am and drove out to Mt. Laguna to see the sun make its morning appearance over the Anza-Borrego Desert.  This is probably my favorite spot and I stop nearly every time I'm on Sunrise Highway, even if it's mid-day; for me it's just that kind of place. 

My original intent was to do a large loop of nearly 100 miles around our east county as I've done a handful of times but instead I just took a hike out Pedro Fages trail to where it descends into the desert at Oriflamme Canyon and sat for a while.  It was cold in the shade and hot in the rising sun and eventually everything was in the mid-morning sun so I hiked back to the car and decided to head home vice making the large loop.

Sometimes it just nice to get out there and sit and listen. Smell the chaparral. Feel the morning air as the day begins. It's intoxicating and revitalizing. Cheers.

I first noticed the top image in your Fine Art America / Pixels.com store. I'm usually most drawn to your black & white images, but I really like the colors and layers in this image. And the scenery is fantastic, I can certainly understand why it's a favorite location. I have to imagine it can be very peaceful and a good place to go think, especially if you're the only one there.
