Hemet Maze Stone

Way out in the boonies lies a solitary rock surrounded by metal fencing – a California Historical Landmark called the Hemet Maze Stone.

It will take at most 5 minutes to reach the Maze Stone, depending on how good you are at inclines. It’s gradual, but still slightly steep…so you can take your time and enjoy the view.

I guess we all do a little purge around the beginning of the year, right? Anyway, I’ll still continue to take pleasure in the little things…like this picture-perfect rose that bloomed seemingly overnight in my aunt’s garden:
