A pleasant El Niño Day
Even if this winter was better than several previous ones, we are still in drought conditions in California. There are no guarantees that one half-decent season of life-giving rain and snow means that next year would be a return to normal. All guesses seem to be that drought and water conservation are the new normal in an environment that has nearly always had plenty of water to go around.
Every couple of years I take a drive one direction or the other up and over Mount Hamilton. If I go from the nearest side, I end up driving down into the San Antonio Valley, then down Del Puerto Canyon into the San Joaquin Valley. It's a several-hour drive, and the worst of it is that where the views are most beautiful and attractive, there is no place to pull over to take photos.
