The Palms to Pines National Scenic Byway
Today we took a drive on CA Hwy 74, the Palms to Pines National Scenic Byway. This scenic
driving tour climbs from the desert through the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains, before descending again to the desert. The route passes through a series of areas preserved for animal habitat, ranging from desert oasis to snow-capped mountains, and parts of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument and San Bernardino National Forest. Drivers can pull off the winding and often steep road at a number of pull offs or lookout points, each with habitat ranging from forested mountainsides with pine, oak and fir, to a reservoir, to arid brush- and cactus-covered stretches -- not to mention sweeping views of mountains and valleys.Coachella Valley within Riverside, San Diego, and Imperial Counties in Southern California. The range connects to the San Jacinto Mountains on its northern end, where the Pines to Palms Highway—California State Route 74, crosses them.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
