You Say Pea-Roo, I Say Pie-Roo


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


Old homestead along the road to Lake Piru.


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


The lake itself. Water levels are still low.


Roadside memorial.


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.
