This is from a photo my son, daughter, and I took on our walk while visiting family down in Modjeska Canyon, CA.
Here they are: my son, Thomas and my oldest daughter, Katherine. They are definitely enjoying the vacation side of Modjeska Canyon!
With just several hundred residents, this  beautiful canyon is filled with oak and olive trees. It is named after Helena Modjeska, the 19th century stage actress. Her home from 1888-1906, "Arden", is a National Historic Landmark. The canyon is also the location of the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary.

I am continually checking a dictionary, thesaurus, spell check, but one thing that has been particularly helpful is the grammar check! Please excuse any errors that I make and tell me! :)
