Wednesday's Winding Road

I took this in May, 2010, on my down to Hesperia, which is a little town down in the desert on the north side of this mountain range.  I took it while driving, so please forgive the poor quality, but this stretch of road has always been one of my favorites up here. There's a little creek on the right side of the road, down in a shallow ravine.  Sometimes I park the car and walk around.  It always astonishes me how much magic this area right next to a fairly busy road manages to keep:

I don't think many people take the time to get out and look over the side; I never see any of the 'markers' that people usually leave behind like squashed plants, cigarette butts and other trash.  It makes me grateful that not many people take the time to investigate places that are a bit difficult to get to (it's a bit of a hike down to the little stream) because, usually, too many people just drive the magic right out.


  1. Lovely!
    I'm so glad you feel the same way I do about the little secret "hidden" worlds that are just beyond the highways and byways.
    The modern world passes them by, but their old spirit lingers.
    There are still pockets of magic out there for those who appreciate them enough to spend time in reverence.
    I often remember Roald Dahl's, "those who don't believe in magic, will never find it".

    But for those who DO believe...

  2. Oh, and by the way - love your new header. Stunning!

  3. Yes, for us the magic IS there!

  4. Oops, I didn't see your second post. Thank you, it's Lake Arrowhead, which is closest to where I live. I wish you could come boating on it with me this summer!

  5. Oh, it would be a dream to come boating on such a magnificent lake.
    Maybe one day...

  6. Dear Vicki - what a beautiful place. So glad that you shared this hidden spot. Too I am like you may these beautiful places remain unmarked and unravished by us humans. How important it is to preserve and care for this earth. Have a great day.

  7. Thanks for sharing this beautiful magic spot of nature! Secret forrest garden loveliness.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  8. Debbie, it's heartening to know that there are others who feel the way I do about caring and preserving the earth!

    Queenie, you're most welcome, I'm happy you liked the little hidden spot.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
