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.
Sun shining through the trees.

View of the Pinnacles through the trees.
Many large boulders are on the top of the Pinnacles.

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

The band-tail pigeon is a grayish color with a hint of blue. This bird is indigenous to the San Bernardino Mountains, and other parts of the Pacific Coast in mountainous regions.
