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.

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.

Mount Baldy is lightly glazed with snow. The mountain range is visible through the oak tree branches up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

This video is a walk up in the San Bernardino Mountains, where I photographed the view of Mount Baldy.

 

 

Snow On The Mountains And Palm Trees In The Valley

Snow on the San Gorgonio Mountains and palm trees in the valley.

The recent rain storms here in Southern California have brought some relief in the form of snow for the higher latitude. Hopefully, all of the precipitation will bring us out of the drought, but we will just have to see how things go. In my dream world it would only rain at night and be sunny during the day, but this is a magnificent scene with snow on Mount San Gorgonio and palm trees down here in the Inland Valley.
