  •  thanks for this! (7+ / 0-)

    i climbed cuyamaca peak a few years back..after the fire too.. spent many happy hours in these montains as well as  in the anza -borrego and places like  the valley of the moon, before you drop down into the desert.

    i also had a colorado upbringing (town of Beulah, SW of Pueblo, in the mountains) and the smell of the pines still transports me.

    in St.David now, down the hills from you.
    have had a wet july, thankfully
    and of course we live for the small of the creoste bush
    (the name is of course misleading to those who don't know)

    but my favorite times are those mornings, and the last few mornings have been like this,
    when the cool moist breeze brings  the smell of pine down into the valley.  ahhhhhh

    thanks again for the nice photos and description of a place you love

    •  Nice to meet you, manyamile. (7+ / 0-)

      St. David is always such a cool place to drive through...so much water!  Ducks, ponds, trees, the river...like a little oasis.

      We had a really good monsoon at the start, late June and early July, but since then, everything has been passing us by, and not really kicking off until farther north.  It's plenty green, now, but it's frustrating to watch all those clouds go by, and rain north of us.

      California, though, is in it's driest year since 1895.  It's going to be a doozy of a fire season, again.

      Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
