Overlooking San Juan Valley

That's Highway 156 running south of San Juan Bautista. Just on the other side of those hills in the middle is Hollister. The towering mountain range is the southern end of the Diablo Range.

If this was a normal weather year, everything would be looking green right now. Hopefully, the new year will bring us rain.

Happy New Year, Dear Take 25 to Hollister Readers!

Looking Good, Hollister!

Click. Click. 

"I love how downtown looks with those mountains in the background," I said to the Husband as I inched closer into the street to get a better picture of the Gavilans to the south of Hollister.

You know what I mean.

N is for a New National Park

Just recently, the area got a new national park when the Pinnacles National Monument was redesignated as the Pinnacles National Park. Hurrah! A big thanks to Congressman Sam Farr for introducing the bill in Congress.

The 59th national park is home to condors, bats, and various other flora and fauna. It offers fun adventures for hikers, birders, rock climbers, naturalists, families, and everyone and anyone who enjoy being outdoors. The eastern entrance is about 30 miles south of Hollister, right off Highway 25. To learn more about the new national park, check out these links:

D is for the Diablo Range

The Diablo Range flanks the east side of Hollister. For that matter, it runs through all of San Benito County. The mountain range starts up in the San Francisco Bay Area and 'flows" down to the northern part of Kern County.
