We were lucky this week to have the time to visit the Leo Carrillo Ranch, which is near San Marcos, CA. It is closed on Mondays, but we stopped there Sunday. It's a BEAUTIFUL ranch, so if you have time, look it up and visit it! I especially love the old adobe houses and its beautiful, old, long barn. I was intrigued by all the fences there and I tried to capture as many of them as I could, so here they are! :-) Friday's Fences for November 29, 2013.

Deserts and Beyond
Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Even as a Native Californian, I had never been to Dana Point. At least I don't remember ever going there, so yesterday hubby and I headed to the point. First, we drove around the Ocean Institute. Then, we drove up the hill to the cliffs above the point. From there, you can take a nature walk down to the edge of the cliff and look out over the ocean. You have to stay on the trail as it is bound by metal railings. Rattlesnakes are in the area, too, and there are signs warning people to stay ON the trail. Yeah, like I'm going to go off into the brush? NOooooooo.....Finally, we drove back down to the island and watched the pelicans dive for fish. They are fun to watch because as soon as they come back up, they are mobbed by seagulls, who are trying to get their fish! It was an interesting morning, but the hike to the edge of the cliff pretty much did me in! After fighting pneumonia 4x now and having chronic bronchitis, I was out of breath after the hike!

No, they aren't real. These are metal horse sculptures located along Highway 79 between Anza and Temecula! It was a beautiful day yesterday, after our "winter" storm, so we headed down to Temecula. I saw these along the road and stopped to take these photos, and another car stopped, too.
