You Say Pea-Roo, I Say Pie-Roo

Looking down the valley over a Thoroughbred horse ranch. Lots of agriculture up here.

Southern Californians tend to get a little overexcited about patches of green like this.

With faulting like this, it’s no wonder this area has seen some earthquake activity! Wouldn’t like to live below the Santa Felicia dam.

According to Wikipedia, the Piru in Piru Canyon, used to be pronounced differently than it is today.  Now it’s the rather awkward, American-ized “Pie-Roo.”

Whatever you call it, this rich agricultural valley off the 126 in Ventura County is beautiful.  Especially on a day like Saturday when it was all greened up from recent rains.
