A colorful display of fall in Balboa Park with the yellow, orange, and red leaves of a sweet gum tree framing the California Tower in the distance.
It's mid December but we still have a bit of fall color in San Diego. Although we'll never have the wide swaths like in the Eastern Sierras we do get some local gems. These are the leaves of a sweet gum tree in Balboa Park with the California tower peaking through. I initially thought the tree was a maple because of the five-pointed leaves, probably a bit of wishful thinking because I grew up in the land of maples, but I quickly realized maple trees don't have those spiky seed pods. These trees are simply wonderful and I love the color they bring to the city.
