A Few Early February Wildflowers in Orange County’s Wild Foothills
Out wandering my favorite just-outside-of-town trails this sunny and breezy afternoon, I was greeted by a few new-blooming wildflowers at Santiago Oaks Regional Park (have I mentioned this is one of my favorite places?):
Of course the trails at Santiago Oaks Regional Park are busy with mountain bikers, but today was my first encounter with a mountain bike + trailer. This dad told me he was towing his three-year-old daughter, who slept on the uphills and woke up for the downhills. Whatever gets kids out in nature . . .
All good times on the trails at Santiago Oaks end with a splash through Santiago Creek at the trail’s end.
