San Timoteo Canyon Winter
I went birding today in San Timoteo Canyon, out of Redlands, CA. I hiked far enough down canyon that I got to the riparian area, and was surprised how much yellow foliage there still is along the creek. Although many of the leaves were in the top half of the trees, there was still an amazing amount of color for January. This is a filtered version of a shot I took of the area. Just before I took this one, I saw a coyote on the trail--by the time I got the camera up he was too far away for a good shot, but it was great seeing wildlife in the canyon.
