July 19, 2022 - Tuesday - Today we headed east into the mile high foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains.  Our destination was the Wildlands Conservancy's Oak Glen Preserve.  The 909 acre preserve is nestled in a glen at an elevation of 5,024 feet and is in the shadow of the 8,700 foot Wilshire Peak.

This adventure was a diversion for us since SoCal Electric scheduled a power outage for "routine maintenance" in our area.  It ended up a routine disaster because our power was out from 8:47 AM on Tuesday through 1:12 AM on Wednesday.

These are ripening blackberries.

The shaded picnic tables are a nice feature.

It's a beautiful place to hike, especially through the "Wetlands Boardwalk."

After the preserve, we had planned to stop for lunch at a local Yucaipa favorite, The Fat Greek.  However, much to our disappointment, it was closed.  We ended up eating at another local restaurant but the food wasn't worthy of a spot on this page.  Sometimes somethings don't work out as planned.
