A view by the lakeside of Elizabeth Lake Ca. Although the land has been scorched and is quite barren in comparison to only a couple of years ago, there is still a peace and tranquility that can be found in the atmosphere here.


It’s always astonishing to see what out of control fires decide to consume or pass by. Much of the landscape here was charred and burned in the summer fires of 2013, yet there are a few random trees which had escaped the devastation and many houses which looked as if the fires had reached right up to the driveways yet somehow managed to survive. Lake Elizabeth itself was once surrounded by vegetation but now looks very desolate.


Along a lone hike today around Elizabeth Lake Ca. I had found a single poppy flower hidden behind the shade of small rock. Most of the surrounding desert area of my journey was burnt and barren land still recovering from Lake Hughes station fire last summer so, to find this bright little flower in the middle of seemingly nowhere was a beautiful treat.
