Our Easter Weekend Wildness Picnic

We explored O’Neil Regional Park in Orange County during our Easter weekend. O‘Neil Regional Park is a major regional park and greenway in northeast Orange County, California in the United States, located along Trabuco Creek and Live Oak Canyon. The park encompasses 4,500 acres of canyon and riparian zone habitat, and includes campgrounds and trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. O’Neill Regional Park’s 4,500 acres are situated in beautiful Trabuco and Live Oak Canyons. The park is heavily wooded with coast live oak and sycamore trees. The hillsides surrounding the park are filled with cactus, wild buckwheat, sagebrush and chaparral of scrub oak, buckthorn and mountain mahogany.

The scenic wildness view and greenery shades provide such a stunning backdrop for our picnic tablescape.

Outdoor Hiking And Picnic

We had spent much of the time in our backyard for cocktail parties and picnics last year due to the lock-down. And this year, with the still on-going pandemic crisis, we plan to do something different. The goal here is able to get away in nature and still enjoy the things we love to do in our backyard such as table setting over the weekends. So we searched the places that not only provide the amazing wildness with interesting trails to explore but also beautiful picnic areas in the park that we can just enjoy sitting around our picnic table. Last weekend, we decided to visit Irvine Regional Park. The park is so breath-taking. Irvine Park in Orange, California is a 160-acre park that became Orange County’s first regional park in 1897. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The park is so dotted with lush oak trees and is qiuite scenic for any kind of picnic. Then, there are quite a few trails to the deep mountains. Since this is our first time to come here, we will have to leave the hiking for another time. But here is our picnic table.

We found a picnic table by a lush oak tree which providesthe nice shade and breeze. The grass is so green in spring time. We decided to go with the classical red-and-white checkered outdoor tablecloth to set the tone for a rather rich-toned table color scheme.

Christmas Day Hiking

We were so lucky that the weather on the Christmas Day was warm and sunny. We went to hike in Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills. Franklin Canyon Park is a public municipal park located near Benedict Canyon, at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, in Los Angeles, California. The park comprises 605 acres, and is located at the purported geographical center of the city of Los Angele. The views here are just amazing.

Weekend Hiking

This weekend we did another hike in Irvine Shady Canyon trail .

The Shady Canyon Trail is an incredibly scenic route along Shady Canyon Drive in southern Irvine. Extending through the southern reaches of the historic Irvine Ranch and protected Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks, the trail is a hilly challenge well worth the effort for its dramatic views. And there are so many branch trails to explore.

The weather was nice and the views were just stunning for this weekend.
