Lake Gregory and the Desert

Sunday and Monday March 3 & 4

We drove over to Marilyn and Vergil's house and rode with them and their dogs up to their house in the mountains. It is at Crestline, above Lake Gregory. It is a beautiful house that they have been building for the last 15 to 20 years. It is almost all done now, just a few finishing things to do. It is on a very steep lot with a stream running thru, so there were lots of technical challenges. Mountain House

After lunch, we drove down to Lake Gregory for a walk and then over to Lake Arrowhead to see what it is like. Back for supper and slideshows, both of our trip and of their trip to Spain. Then it was bedtime, so we could get up early.

When morning arrived we had breakfast and packed up. Then we drove down the back side of the mountains so we could drive thru the desert and see some of the desert plants on our way back to town. We saw lots of Joshua trees and different kinds of cactus. Joshua Tree in Bloom

We had a picnic lunch in a nice little park in Lucerne Valley. We arrived back in Yorba Linda around supper time and we took Marilyn and Vergil out for supper at a Lebanese restaurant they are familiar with. It was delicious. After supper, we said our good byes and got in our own car to drive back to our B&B. Tomorrow we fly home to Saskatoon, hopefully with no hitches!
