My wife Cheryl and I moved to Escondido, California near the end of 2008. Cheryl had been raised in Escondido. We returned to be near her parents. Our search for 'something to do outside' led us to the San Dieguito River Park and the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy.
The San Dieguito River Park is an interesting concept...it focuses on one particular watershed...the San Dieguito Watershed. Every square inch of the planet earth's surface is part of a watershed. Most square inches of the earth's surface are parts of multiple watersheds. For example, the drainage to the west of the Rocky Mountains is often defined as a watershed. In the case of the San Dieguito Watershed it is the drainage from Volcan Mountain, near Julian, to the exit of the watershed into the Pacific Ocean at Del Mar, California. The San Dieguito watershed has watersheds within it's borders.
I have a passion for photography. As time passed I realized that the entities that support preservation of the San Dieguito watershed had a need for some of the images that I had been capturing...and so I have made a portion of the images available via this on-line gallery. SDRP and SDRVC and other entities involved in the promotion or preservation of the watershed utilize some of these images for marketing, documentation, support of grant applications, etc.
Need something that you don't see? Give me a call and I'll try to help you.
