Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “escape”. You can click on any photo below to see it in a larger format.

There are many ways to escape but I think my favorite is through books. Nowhere else can you visit faraway lands and people, real or imaginary, at any moment in time. My latest escape? The Guardians of Childhood book series by William Joyce. Wonderful adventures!

Living in San Diego, there are many places I can escape to. The first one I think of is the beach.

I can also escape to the mountains.

I can escape to a magical fairyland by going up these stone steps.

Or escape deep into the beautiful details of nature.

Oh, and now that I got myself some new Pirelli tires, I can escape really fast. Zoom zoom!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Steps or stairs

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is steps or stairs. I only have one photo to share for this theme, but when I saw these beautiful steps a couple of weeks ago, I knew they deserved their own photo post.

I found these amazing stone steps at Dos Picos County Park in Ramona, California, while hiking on a trail at the back of the park. In the spring, Dos Picos Park is simply beautiful. The grass that grows there is quite particular. It’s very fine, very tall, very soft, and very… green! Believe me, living in San Diego, you don’t get to see grass this green very often.

Between the many coast live oaks, the blooming lilacs (you can see photos of those lilacs here and here), and greener than green grass, sometimes I feel like I’ve stepped into some type of fairyland. And that’s why I think these stone steps fit perfectly with the fairyland theme. What do you think?
