This post is one in a series about a recent trip to Southern California. To “Like” the entire series, click here.
While driving home that first day from the Salton Sea, it was amazing how once we had climbed up from the elevation of the high desert, we found ourselves on a higher plateau where the Santa Ysabel Reservation is located. The change was stunning, as we then found ourselves in a grassy, tree laden, cool area with ranches and farms.
After these photos, the remaining pictures were taken on two other days, some from around Carabillo Point (the first place of European landing in the San Diego, California area), and others from the beautiful seaside resort of Oceanview.
As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does all the heavy lifting in selecting the photos. And thank you sincerely for dropping by the Book of Bokeh. I would also like to invite you to visit my Book of Pain poetry blog.
Below is a panorama and our last view of the high desert plain. (Click on the photo to see a larger image; click on that larger image to see it full size.)
