Beginning 2007 in Pictures

Happy New Year from southern California!

Hope you've had a blessed weekend and glorious beginning of the new year. We spent the weekend (Sat - Today) exploring. These pictures are from Saturday and today when we went to Vasquez Rocks California State Park in the community of Agua Dulce. We did a little research and Agua Dulce is Spanish for sweet water. These rocks and state park have long been used in filming various Hollywood movies, most notably The Flintstones movie. It got its name from the bandit Tiburcio Vasquez who used these rocks for a hideout. Douglas had great fun staging an ambush. It truly is a fascinating place.

This is the view on the way to the two county parks

The kids in one of the many caves

As you can see, there are people all over these rocks. We didn't make it to the very top. It gets pretty steep. Phillip and the kids climbed pretty high today ~ see the next picture.

I was so surprised to look up and see my family waaay up here! It looked like they were just hopping along with very little effort. Phillip came down to my level, grabbed the camera and took this one before helping everyone ~slide~ down.

The sun is setting behind the hills in this picture. It's truly the prettiest time to be out.

Another sunset picture. The pictures really don't show the beauty of the light on the hills. It's spectacular and ever-changing.

Abundant Blessings to you in the New Year~
