Our recent relocation has placed us in a wonderful spot with nature that surrounds us, and calls to me. It’s all new, and I finally made a break for it yesterday afternoon to visit Round Valley Regional Preserve. This 1,911 acre preserve was once home to California Indians, and seemed to be a boundary between several different tribal groups. The open space is home to oak trees of different species, Manzanita, and a variety of other trees that are in their full glory in this late fall weather. After parking my car and heading up one of the trails, I ran into one of the park security rangers who gave me a brief idea of the trails and their degree of ease or difficulty. I had on flip flops (go figure), so my visit was going to be brief with limited hiking. I had taken my camera out of hibernation, and with that around my neck and my phone in hand, I walked a short distance only. I’ll be back.
The light at around 2:30, with storm clouds coming up from the west, was incredible.
This was just a teaser visit. I can’t wait to get back, and it’s only ten minutes from where we live.
iPhone 6 Plus used, with Camera+. Thanks to Lens and Pens by Sally for this challenge that motivated me to get out there yesterday.
