September 9, 2020 - Wednesday - Today we drove north into Highland, CA to see one of their local parks. Highland’s original town site was founded in 1891, and the community soon became an important contributor to the citrus industry. The park is called Aurantia Park and it's a 12 acre park that was donated to the city of Highland by a local citrus grower. It serves as a landmark to the long history of citrus production dating back to the 1850s. "Aurantia" means "golden," for the type of oranges grown here.
The unattractive picture below is looking east towards the El Dorado fire.
There are numerous lavender plants everywhere.
The beautiful San Bernardino mountain range is just north of the park.
It's a very comfortable park for a nice morning walk.
