Scenic Sunday~~February 15, 2009











Yesterday hubby and I visited the Whitewater preserve, which is up in at the base of the San Bernardino mountains. It is back in the canyon there and has a fish hatchery and picnic tables. The road is seldom traveled, but yesterday there were a few visitors. We parked the car and walked up one of the trails back further into the canyon. Our local mountains still had much of the snow from last week's storm and we wanted to take some photographs of them before it clouded up again today and the very narrow road would be closed up to the preserve. The water from the San Bernardino mountains, as it melts, flows into the Whitewater channel. From there, it flows down into the valley below and replenishes our great underground aquafer.
