The Fall Photo Contest deadline of December 15 has past. Thank you to those who took their time to enter the contest! We received 15 entries, but one was disqualified because it was not taken in the Juniper Flats Area. The judges will be looking carefully at the other 14 entries during the next week or two. The photos are numbered and named, but the photographer has been left off. Their name will be added after Jan 2 when the winners will be announced.
“Fall Colors in the Juniper Flats Area”
The winning entry will be the one that stands out from the others as it depicts the natural environment in a stunning way.
Have fun and vote on the photos!

All the photos were taken in the Juniper Flat Area
This area is public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). It is located on the north slope of the San Bernardino Mountains just south of Apple Valley, CA. The photos were taken off Grapevine Canyon Rd (aka JF3225 and JF3223); JF3221M near Oak Springs Ranch; Bowen Ranch Rd (aka JF3310); Juniper Flats Road (aka JF4325); JF3253; JF3275; Powerline Rd (aka JF3330); JF3355M; JF3130; JF3215. Check out these locations on the map below! The routes with an “M” after the 4 digits are for 2 wheeled motorcycles. While you can go anywhere on foot or horseback, vehicles are required to remain on the designated, signed routes. The green on the map to the north is the San Bernardino National Forest. The brown areas are private property. Take care while visiting as some roads are badly eroded. Bowen Ranch Road (JF3310) is a dirt road maintained by the county and provides access for all vehicles. Most other roads require a high clearance or 4×4 vehicle.
