The San Ysidro Mountains

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 12 May 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

These mountains help add to the remote feeling of this park. The mountain on the right is Indian Head and the canyon to its left is Palm Canyon. Further to the West, the Peninsular Range blocks a lot of the moisture sweeping inland from the Pacific Ocean. That explains the desert nature of the place.

The desert is more sad without the beautiful yellow flowers but it is very beautiful all the same

Indeed, in a country of over three hundred million, you still have these beautiful remote landscapes. Great shot.

I totally agree with you about the feel of aloneness one gets out there, not more than an hour and a half from San Diego's busy traffic....Yet, here, that sense of separation from the "busy-ness" is amazing....Beautiful image and narrative as always Steve!! I Love this one ;-)
