Mustard Grass Hills , San Diego

Spring in San Diego mean lots of wild mustard grass blooming in the canyon fissures. This is Marion Bear Park and its a lovely hike three miles east of the ocean. The uplift is acualy a small earthquake fault that is not very active. Its full of sycamore, poisen oak, and many rabbits, squirrels and snakes which makes it priming hunting land for the hawks the swirl overhead in the updrafts. By summer it will be brown and a hazard for fall fires in dry seasons but every month has its beauty here.
