Spring is the most precious time of year in Southern California. For a couple of weeks, the beige and brown tones that dominate the landscape (together with the dark green of some hardy and drought-resistant chaparral shrubs) are replaced by the freshness of bright green grass, as well as the colors and scent of flowering bushes and trees.

Hollenbeck Canyon in the south-eastern part of San Diego County, near Jamul, is one area were the beauty of spring can be experienced in all it’s vibrant intensity. It doesn’t last long. Within a month, the fresh green grass dries up, turning into a bright beige, giving California back the meaning of its nickname: The Golden State.
