Fall Hike

Hike in Cold Canyon, just west of Winters, California.

Fall is so different here than back East, but I've been here a little more than a decade now, and the changing slant of the sun signals a shift in season to me more than it used to.

And, of course, this time of year, there's far less water than there will be in just a few months. This is the creek bed right now:


And despite the dry, warm, non-Eastern fall, if you look for color, you'll find it. (I don't know what these leaves are, but I love that they look like pumpkins.)

Happy hiking doggies:

  1. I think the topmost of the pumpkiny leaf pix should be our masthead photo for this autumn. Seasonally appropriate, Amy! xox
