  3. I love being surrounded by trees and the sounds of nature so I choose the forest as my outdoor environment. There is just something to be said for getting away from all the noise and business of the city and just relaxing in mother natures back yard. The con of the forest would be those that bring all their city noise with them when they visit. Hard to listen to nature when all you hear is motorcycles and loud music blaring.

  7. i like walking on a pier, reading and watching ocean life on the pier. i think because our waters are warming, we are seeing more ocean life closer to shore, i see a lot more dolphins, and we have begun to have sea lions on the boat docks more often and sea otters around more And i love the smell of ocean air. what i dont like is the trash people keep leaving behind when they leave, and warming of waters is causing wasting disease of star fish witch is completely decimated, and a lot more sharks are coming closer to shore.

  20. Two men who would feature in Santa Clarita Valley history — as allies — held opposing loyalties during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848. Both Andrés Pico (as in Pico Canyon) and Edward F. "Ned" Beale (Beale's Cut, Tejon Ranch) played significant roles in the December 1846 Battle of San Pasqual, fought in proximity to an active Kumeyaay Indian village near the present city of Escondido in San Diego County. Bedrock mortars are found throughout the hills surrounding the battlefield, where a California State Historic Park visitors center tells the story of the battle and the broader war (in

    Glow of Amber

    As night falls, the dark cascades throughout the room; creeping, lurking. This cycle of life shows us all that death will eventually come; not even light is safe. However, even in darkness there is a hopeful glimmer of dimly-lit candle light, however grim, will always be there to guide us safely ashore bridging the ever widening chasm between the two cycles of life and death; in the end, it will be okay.

    M1841 Cannon

    The M1841 6-pounder field gun was a bronze smoothbore muzzle-loading cannon that was adopted by the United States Army in 1841 and used from the Mexican–American War to the American Civil War. It fired a 6.1 lb (2.8 kg) round shot up to a distance of 1,523 yd (1,393 m) at 5° elevation. It could also fire canister shot and spherical case shot. The cannon proved very effective when employed by light artillery units during the Mexican–American War.

    San Pasqual Wall

    San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park, east of Escondido, honors the soldiers who fought in the battle between the U.S. and Californio forces on December 6, 1846 in the midst of the Mexican-American War. Generals Stephen Kearny and Andrés Pico both claimed victory. The battle was only one of the military encounters in California in the war, but it proved to be the bloodiest and most controversial as to the outcome. The park has been set aside, not as a monument to war, but as a reminder of the human ideals, actions and passions that can drive nations to bloodshed.

    Adobe Building

    Adobe bricks are rectangular prisms small enough that they can quickly air dry individually without cracking. They can be subsequently assembled, with the application of adobe mud to bond the individual bricks into a structure. There is no standard size, with substantial variations over the years and in different regions. In some areas a popular size measured 8 by 4 by 12 inches (20 cm × 10 cm × 30 cm) weighing about 25 pounds (11 kg); in other contexts the size is 10 by 4 by 14 inches (25 cm × 10 cm × 36 cm) weighing about 35 pounds (16 kg).
