Sometimes my wife and I will take the back, more scenic route to Murrieta from our home in Temecula. We will do this on occasion for different reasons, sometimes it’s just a change of scenery. Every time we take this back way there is this area that I always drive through a little slower. The hills are rolling and houses are few and far between.
This particular tree always seems to catch my eye. I don’t know what it is, but when I was asked to submit something to Dearest Nature this is where I found myself. Only this time I pulled off to the side of the road with my camera, instead of driving right past it.
