Yesterday, I mentioned we're total weather wimps here in Southern California.
Sure enough, those statements were followed by a big storm complete with hail.
It's just a phone pic, so it may not be THAT visible – but it's real hail!
Very exciting stuff here in Orange County.
Before we move on from Saturday's exciting encounter with a bobcat, I wanted to share a couple other photos from that same hike.
I think the road into (or out of) the park is so pretty all on its own.
Also, did you know there are actually places here with creeks, and streams, and waterfalls?
Real running water that isn't the ocean, or coming out of a faucet …
It was pretty shallow and mossy which is why it looks so green.
(The entire park was green, green, green … and no, I did not adjust the intensity of the greens in any of the park photos.)
A few weeks ago, I shared a photo of the prickly pear cacti blooming.
Now they have fruit:
And yes, you can eat prickly pears. I've had them myself before. You do have to be very careful picking, handling, and preparing them though.
