An old-fashioned gazebo at Peninsula Park in Newport Beach.   The park is on the Balboa Peninsula, near the Balboa Pier.

Inyo County

One of the "low points" in our journey ;)  Actually we enjoyed Death Valley National Park very much, and our early April visit coincided with a great bloom of wildflowers, not shown in this particular picture.

Riverside County
August 2003

The Citrus State Historical Park, in Riverside, memorializes the birth of California's citrus industry.  Citrus ranching in California started with the arrival of two small navel orange trees, way back in 1873.

Los Angeles County

The colorful and quirky Ocean Front Walk at Venice Beach.

Imperial County
April 2005

A shot taken from the eastern shore of the Salton Sea, California's largest lake. The Salton Sea is even saltier than the Pacific Ocean.  The submerged tree visible in the picture gives an indication of the lake's fluctuating levels.

San Bernardino County
San Bernardino
August 2003

A home at mile-high Lake Arrowhead, which is just visible in the background.  Located just a couple of hours from Los Angeles, Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake are both popular recreational destinations for urban Southern California.
