Montebello Open Space Preserve

By Carol at 9:13 pm on Thursday, November 13, 2008

Our first Autumn hike back in California was in this beautiful park off Page Mill Road, in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We hiked the Canyon Trail to Bella Vista and Old Ranch Trails up to Black Mountain, and back. It was lunch time when we reached this meadow near the top of the ridge. Tiny shoots of new green grass are beginning to appear under last year’s stubble. In the distance, looking southwest toward Santa Cruz, are mist shrouded evergreen forests of Douglas fir and sequoia sempervirens.
