November 2021 Activity: Peñasquitos Canyon Nature Walk

Please join our president Alexander S. Kunz for our November 2021 photography activity: we’ll go for a nature walk on the trails in the riparian woodlands at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve.

As usual, this is not a Sierra Club outing. You may join, leave, participate as you wish on the scheduled date, and at your own risk. Please continue reading for the details.

Late in the year, sycamore trees, willows and cottonwoods may provide us with some fall colors in San Diego County, and plenty of them grow at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve. But in this particular place, it’s less the big scenery that is attractive, but instead, the intimate details: leaves on the ground, reflections in the creek, pebbles, cobbles, roots or, if you’re willing to haul a long lens, the birds! Plenty of acorn woodpeckers and scrub jays can be seen and heard there.


  • Date: Saturday, November 13, 2021
  • Time: 9 AM at the historic PQ Ranch House
  • Location: Google Maps Link (end of Canyonside Park Driveway, San Diego)
  • No RSVP is necessary – be there and join the fun!

Hope to see you there!
