Apple Boulders

It's pretty faded now. I wouldn't waste my time and drive specifically to see it -- but fun to look for while driving by.

Just a short stroll away from the apple boulders, on the same scrabbly patch of dirt, is a rock "Bison."

I work out in Riverside County and tend to have to wander around. This is a fun little spot to take some pictures, sit on a rock, watch traffic and waste time till the next appointment.

I am the artist who first painted these boulders in 1983. Lived just above the bluffs behind the Rocks. These have been well cared for by locals, since I originally did the art -- several re-coats of paint have been added- I appreciate the honest care which local folks have given to this art work.

One day I should go there and actually paint it better with fresh red paint!

Update on the Apple Boulders in Perris. I've seen several people stopping by the apple and taking pictures.
