It is 1pm and 110F-ish. I'm hiding in the shade of a rock lip in Vasquez Park. I missed the desert. This post written before I cooked under the heat of the sun.
If you've been watching the San Gabriel Mountains north of LA, you've seen the snow. I wanted to see the snow up close, and not just through a few dozen miles of pollution. The environment changes completely at 5000 feet altitude, only a few miles off the 210. Find out about the Icehouse Canyon Trail and plan out a trip while there's still snow!
It's time for another Six on Saturday mixup-mashup of news in the garden and outside! On the plant today are a handful of blueberries, some new tomatoes, paperwhites, a hike in search of snow, and a leaf shaped like a heart. I hope you've all had a great week!
