A botanical walk in Elfin Forest!

Elfin Forest is a creek outside of Escondido California and comes directly from Lake Hodges which is used for drinking water. The water is so clean and cold.  I shared some blue California Lilac bushes for Color Crazy and thought I would share some of the rest of the walk with you. Flowers are blooming everywhere!

Just a little upstream from here we had to cross the creek to head up the hill.
