Almost bare trees
The red maples and sycamores are almost bare up at the horse ranch where I board my horses. We've had quite a few days of Santa Ana winds, which are the winds that come down from the high desert, sweeping into our deserts and mountains. The red maples are almost bare with just a few leaves still hanging on. The sycamores are doing a bit better, as you can see. I took a quick run up the mountain to the horse ranch yesterday while the grandson took a 3 hour nap. I had 3 bags of pellets to unload for the horses and I wanted to give them a Christmas Day treat! It was a bit breezy up there, but it wasn't as windy or as cold as it has been.
