Cimarron Canyon Reservoir

This reservoir was a complete surprise to me. 
It's sitting quietly in the midst of dozens of homes
and condominiums.

I'd never been to 4S Ranch, a planned community
just west of I-15 across from Rancho Bernardo,

4S Ranch is not in San Diego City but
an unincorporated area created from
a 3500-acre ranch owned by 
the Ralph's Supermarket family 
since the 1930's.

San Diego doesn't provide them water; 
it comes from the Olivenhaim Water District
which is way off in the hills shown in the background.
I haven't been to the Olivenhain Reservoir yet.

It's one of the nicest places to loiter that I've seen in months.
But not today, as the cameras are scanning me...
