KA by Cirque Du Soleil

Cirque Du Soleil - KA - Forest Duet - Photo by Jerry MetellusKA by Cirque Du Soleil is probably the biggest theatrical production in the world with the latest audio/visual technology. 
The show is a clever mix of traditional circus acts with modern technology with a storyline. The story is not clearly defined because the actors use an invented language. But that doesn’t take away from the wonderful production and amazing feats performed in a fluid environment.

Walker Canyon - Poppy Flowers

Walker Canyon Poppy Flower Super Bloom - FlowersEvery year in springtime, people driving along highways are greeted with hills and canyons painted in orange, green and violet.

We recently visited the super bloom at Walker Canyon, which lies in between the Cities of Corona and Lake Elsinore.
If you stick to the main trail, you will notice that the first quarter mile is a little steep but it will even out later. The crowds will also thin out the further you go. If you want a longer hike, take a fork to the right, which loops back into Walker Canyon Rd for a total of 5 miles.

Annecy France

The city of Annecy started as a Roman settlement and later became home to the counts of Geneva in the 10th century. In 1400 it became home to the counts of Savoy and in 1860 it became the capital of  Haute-Savoie in France. Read more here.

Torrey Pines State Reserve

Torrey Pines State Reserve - Guy Fleming Trail Just before you reach the city of San Diego, there is a large area set aside to preserve the natural beauty of coastal pines and sheer cliffs. It is a 2000-acre State Park in La Jolla Village – but close the city of Del Mar.

The park is home to a large variety of animal and plant species like bobcats, foxes, coyotes, rabbits, cacti, coastal chaparral - but most prominent inhabitant is the rare Torrey pine.

With 8-miles of trails running through this park, it is a major attraction to hikers. Both casual and serious hikers come to enjoy the challenges of the hike and the stunning views overlooking the ocean.
