Happy New Year! One of my goals for this year is to get outside more. I took a lovely walk on Wednesday and wanted to share it with you. This is the trail right behind my house. It's about a 20 minute walk. Even though my front yard looks like a typical suburban neighborhood, I am blessed to have a wilderness for my backyard.
Gus and Daisy like to lead the way along the canal.
Walking on the edge of the canyon.
This is the North Fork American River. The river looks pretty low Wednesday. It is much higher today!
The weather took a turn for the worse on Friday. We were hit with a huge rainstorm with winds up to 80 mph. We have been cleaning up the yard ever since. Most of our side fences blew down (the back is wire and held up well) and we had lots of trash, branches and mud everywhere. We were lucky, though. Many of our neigbors lost trees and still don't have their power back.
