Exploring Banning CA

Welcome to the Exploring Banning website. Our family moved to Banning in the 1961 when I was 6 years old. When I was 21 I moved up to Northern California. After 27 years circumstances brought me back to the San Gorgonio Pass area . Coming back after all of those years brought back fond memories of growing up. While some things have changed, most of Banning had stayed the same. Since moving back to Banning, I decided to photograph many of the the places I remember growing up, as well as the changes since I left. I hope those who have left for greener pastures remember our beautiful little town as I have.- Ron Lakin
