The one place I will always feel the most connected to is the San Bernardino Mountains. I grew up there, and even though I prefer living in the city, I do enjoy living close to where I can gaze up at the mountains each day. Years ago when I lived out on the California/Arizona border, I missed seeing my traverse mountain range each day on the horizon. What is a traverse mountain range, you ask? As much as I love looking at palm trees in the Inland Valley, my heart will always be drawn aloft to the pines on the mountains above.
