A group of CVHC photo enthusiasts recently hiked through the oak and riparian woodlands at the Wildlands Conservancy at Oak Glen on Nov 6. We had a great time–perfect weather, uncrowded, a slow saunter past the ponds. And, in the morning light. Everyone enjoyed apple cider and apple pie afterwards. Great fall color!! This hike should be on everyone’s list. It is only a 45 minute drive from Palm Springs, in the hills above Beaumont at 4700 ft elevation.–submitted by Craig Toms
