Trees In The San Bernardino Mountains
Walking in the San Bernardino Mountains during late autumn furnishes a world-class view of golden oak leaves getting ready to fall to the ground, and the beautiful pine trees that remain verdant all year. Our deciduous oak trees have leaves that change between yellow and orange tinted hues, but are still mesmerizing to look at. There are a myriad of leaf colors that you can see during the autumn in other parts of North America, but the only color seen on our oaks is the yellow. Coming to the San Bernardino Mountains allows you to see the changing colors of trees, which is something you will not see much of in the Inland Valley and the urban areas of Los Angles.

Taking pictures of the trees and the acorns in the San Bernardino Mountains is very intriguing. I have even made a meal out of ground up acorns I have collected up here, which was the main source of grain for the Serrano Indians before the arrival of Europeans.

As I continue to walk down the road I see many other trees that are worthy of being photographed, or maybe even sketched.
