Walking In The San Bernardino Mountains

The oak branch hanging down frames the view of this tree laden hillside up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

One of my favorite pass times is taking pictures on my nature walks up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

The Coulter pine is the first thing I spot walking down the forest trail.
There are many holes burrowed into the Coulter pine tree, which is where the woodpeckers store their food for winter.
The forest trail continues downhill into a bend.

Sunset With The View of Mount Baldy

At sunset last night I walked outside to view the like pink tinged sky.

One thing I adore about the San Bernardino Mountains is being able to view other mountain ranges from this one, especially with the interesting silhouettes these create at sunset.

Nature In The San Bernardino Mountains

Two oak trees turning yellow in the forest.

Tonight I decided to share some more of the beautiful natural sights from my last trip to the San Bernardino Mountains here in Southern California.

Acorns, leaves, and sticks on the ground in the forest.
Sunlight shimmering through the oak leaves turning golden in hue.

I created a little San Bernardino Mountains nature movie, so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Mountains.
