Just in case you wanted to know, this is the view that our Palms and Cycads enjoy each day!
You are looking over Pauma Valley, due north, to Palomar Mountain at 5500 feet elevation, home of the Palomar Observatory.
There is snow down to the level of 2000 feet after the Valentines Day storm of 2008! Hidden behind Palomar is Mt. San Jacinto, 10,834 feet elevation, home of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and other delights. Because we are at 1500 feet elevation, Palomar blocks the view but if we were only 300 feet higher we would see the tip of Mt. San Jacinto. To the left edge of Palomar (not shown) is Mt. Gorgonio, 11,499 feet elevation, which is snow-capped 5 months of the year providing us with a calendar-perfect picture.
