Definitely one of the places people visit.
For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red “…You can look but you better not touch!…” (poison oak) 😜
Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week is “Small is Beautiful“. Bee-utiful to me 😉 .

Average annual rainfall: 2.5 inches (63.5 mm). On a visit here it would be unlikely to rain. But not impossible.
Looks like snow but it is an illusion created by the prolific bloom on the trees and the carpet of petals underneath.
Shivering in the cold (single digit Fahrenheit) under a completely overcast sky before dawn, this had all the makings for a complete bust photography-wise. Then, bam! The dawn sun came up and a red/orange glow spread across the clouds and the water. Wow!
It was gone in a couple of minutes. But being there for those few moments to see and capture an image more than made it worth getting up so early, hiking in the dark and enduring the cold discomfort. It is definitely a favorite sunrise.
Definitely a favorite place to visit this time of year. Not too hot or too cold. Even with a threat of rain, just right 🙂 !
