PASADENA'S LOWER ARROYO


I have barely been able to contain myself over the discovery of Pasadena's Lower Arroyo. Less than two miles from my apartment, and hard by the world-renowned Rose Bowl, the Arroyo, technically a flood control channel for the water than snakes down from the mountains (plus it is RAINING in Southern California madly, after a years-long drought!), runs through some of Pasadena's most beautiful neighborhoods.

I've barely scratched the surface but there are WPA bridges, native plant gardens, restoration organizations, birds galore, stray benches, hidden spots to sit and ponder, miles of trails to walk, and infinite photo possibilities.

Here are a few I took recently during the magic hour and then closer to dusk.

More to come. Happy happy 2017.

  1. Nothing helps soothe the soul, relax the mind or provides an escape from the cement sidewalks and concrete buildings better than spending some time surrounded by nature. Fortunately, you don’t need to drive miles, plan for weeks or fill a backpack to enjoy the peaceful sounds of wind through the trees and a gentle running stream. Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Seco Nature Park is the perfect oasis for a temporary reprieve from the urban hustle and bustle.
