Winter Trees at Big Morongo Preserve
It was an overcast Sunday, with a gunmetal sky, a typical winter day. After reading the paper, we decided to take a walk through the Marsh area of Big Morongo Preserve. It's our little bit of 'New England' here in the desert. The trees were barren of leaves, open upward to the sky, with a few scattered clouds. The air was not too chilly, but enough to keep you moving forward. In the background, there was the soft burbling of water underneath the boardwalk and the tiny Bushtits, twittering and flashing amongst the silver and black limbs to keep you company. A lovely day.
