Out of the Cold, into the Valley

We left the snow and freezing rain in Portland yesterday and headed south to see friends and family in Southern California.  On a brief walk today with my sister in law , we walked past many orange trees.  For some reason they seem magical to me.

I also found a pond on the Cal State Northridge campus with a lot of ducks and turtles sunning themselves.  It was not an earth shattering urban hike, but it definitely felt good to walk in the sun.
