Further south, joggers run along a trail through Double Peak Park in San Marcos, where ceanothus — California lilac — bushes are in full bloom.

Staying in California, Daniel Larsen, with his wife by his side, leaves a federal courthouse in Los Angeles  after being freed by a judge who found him innocent of carrying a concealed knife during a 1998 bar fight in Northridge. The California Innocence Project helped with Larsen’s appeals.
