We are so lucky to live in a beautiful river valley.
It was an exquisite sunset last night.
Driving home on the narrow canyon road I had to stop the car and take a look back at the setting sun reflecting on the Santa Margarita River below.
The river banks are thick with sycamore, oak, sumac, toyon and manzanita. A couple of washingtonia palms and eucalyptus invaders are thrown in for good measure.
I am extraordinarily grateful for the thirty years I have lived on its bank.
