Have you enjoyed a place of quiet lately? We found a new trail to hike that turned out to be just that.
The Santa Ysabel Preserve near Julian is just a mile or two from the little town, but a world away from noise, people, hustle, bustle. We walked to the sound of the wind in the trees and birdsong. A fire tore through this area 10 years ago. The dead trees still stand, with their white trunks and bare branches.
