Beauty and Danger

Los Peñasquitos Canyon in San Diego County has over 500 plant species, more than 175 types of birds, and great variety of reptiles, amphibians and mammals.

For those reasons and many more, it is one of our favorite places to hike~!

It has miles and miles of beautiful trails (I think you saw some of those yesterday with an old west perspective..?)

Yes, sir, beautiful things all around~!

But mixed in with the beauty, is danger…from bobcats to rattlesnakes…

Poison Oak to posies….

Morning glories to moon flowers….

Buckwheat to bees….

Beauty and Danger all around!

Now I suggest you turn off your computer and go enjoy some outdoor beauty (and please try to avoid the danger cuz I need you back here tomorrow!)


Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”   Ashley Smith
