The Neighborhood

I am taking advantage of these times to take a walking tours of the streets near my home. It is spring and flowers are everywhere, some wild, some not. I am working with black for backgrounds of many of these photos. To me these bright flowers on dark backgrounds symbolize the times we are currently living through. There is so much to be grateful for!

Flowers and Falls

This post refers to two hikes. Click the links in the description below to see more photos for each hike.

I visited Cedar Creek Falls in the San Diego backcountry a few weeks ago. I was lucky to go when I did. Two days after I was there the trailhead parking was closed, one of the first trailheads to close due to Covid-19 social distancing. While the draw and for the hike was to photograph the falls, I also enjoyed the flowers and hillside.

The flower below was taken along another trail, Dripping Springs Trail just the other day.
