Sierra Madre Natural Wonders Video From Reader Jeff

Posted 7/22/14 – One of the things people love about Sierra Madre is what a great place it is to walk, and one of the things people love about their walks, is the amazing examples of nature to be found, from bears and deer to the mountains to plants, trees and flowers.  Recently, reader Jeff sent in a link to his YouTube video of still shots he’s taken of some of the beautiful plants he’s encountered here in Sierra Madre.  I thought it was beautiful, so I asked for permission to share it.  You’ll find it below.

Do you have a Sierra Madre oriented video you’d like to share with News Net readers?  Feel free to submit your links to us at info@sierramadrenews.net and we’ll take a look.
