Close to home



Took another hike yesterday up in the Sierra foothills. It is a trail park that is maintained by a joint effort between the local county and private support. I really loved the well maintained trails. The manzanita has grown and been maintained to create a canopy over various parts of the trails. Even though it got pretty hot, we really had a good time. Who knew that this wonderful place was so close. I have created some sketches and will post those later. 

A gem of the trip was the trail that took us to the Hidden Falls and the Seven Pools. It was so nice to see the water still running even this late in the summer. I do love how the water flows over the granite rocks. The falls have created little pools in the granite. So amazing that water can carve something as strong as granite.
