History And Murals Of Santa Paula, CA

Today my neighbor Jean and I drove up to Santa Paula, CA to check out the sculptures and murals around the old town district. We parked at the old train depot and started our walk around town. Santa Paula, CA is located in the Heritage Valley in Ventura County. It is a small farming town dating back to the 1890s.

Our first top was to check out the sculptures of 2 motorcycle officers who bravely road all over town the night the St. Francis Dam collapsed up-river in the Santa Clarita Valley. The wall of water was heading straight for Santa Paula and the officers went from house to house warning people of the danger that was heading their way.

We then checked out the Migrant Farm Workers memorial.

We then started to find the murals that are painted on the sides of the old buildings that depict the history of Santa Paula.

On our way back to the car, we came upon a huge fig tree near the train depot and then we looked down the tracks that headed for home.

Friday At Towsley

Today was a beautiful day in SoCal. We've been in the middle of a winter heatwave so I thought I'd take advantage of it and take my dog Hiker on a hike to Towsley Canyon here in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Towsley is across the valley from us and is one of my very favorite spots to hike and take photos. We had not been there for quite a while.

As us you can see it was a gorgeous day

Approaching The Narrows

There was actually a little bit of water in the creek. We took a rest in The Narrows.

I May Have Changed My Mind

I may have changed my mind about deleting this blog.

For several years, I posted every day...sharing what Hiker and I were up to.

I'm thinking about keeping the blog online, but only post to it when Hiker and I have a special day to share, like a great walk, or a nice hike. Or I'll share day trips I make with friends with information and pictures.

It won't be an "every day" blog, but I'll still be here.
