O Is For Open Spaces

Today the letter O is for open spaces because I am continuing to share the photographs I took on my hike up in the San Bernardino Mountains. Personally, I enjoy nature since I grew up in the mountains, and it is comforting to see trees, rocks, wild flowers, chaparral, and other plant and animal life can be found out in the open during a hike.

Just going on a little hike up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

  1. Beautiful. I think the San Bernardino Mountains are along the Pacific Crest Trail, no? Have you read ‘Wild: Lost and Found on the Pacific Crest Trail’ by Cheryl Strayed? Awesome book; I think you’d enjoy it.

    1. The Pacific Crest Trail can be picked up about two miles from where I took this hike. The San Bernardino Mountains are about a hundred miles inland from the ocean, but the trail does go near the ocean on other parts of its length up the Pacific Coast. I have not read that book, but I will have to check it out. AT the moment I am reading a book about wild flowers on the Pacific Coast, even though that is not about the Pacific Crest Trail specifically.

    1. There are guided tours probably near where you live. These can be at all levels of hiking abilities :). I love the view on that day I went hiking, and the spring flowers made it come to life.

    1. There are wooded areas five miles from this location, but it becomes more deserty on the backside of the mountain. I think hiking in all types of areas can be fun, but I enjoyed the wild flowers I spotted on my hike last week.

    1. I am including all the pictures I took here because each is pretty, and it might bore a few, but I love flowers :).
