We Went Back . . . With Friends

When you find a great photo opportunity it gets even better when shared with friends!  So, six of us went to the Peralta Trailhead, a new spot for them and a great return for us!  We were disappointed in the light. It was cloudy, overcast and dull. We made the best of it and as the day progressed the sky became a bit more interesting.

We hope you enjoy the images.

There were puddles everywhere and some deep water holes in the road. There was a pond with a small spring along the trail that has not been there in our previous visits. This offered up a whole new photo opportunity.

Every trip is full of surprises. This was my favorite one on this trip.

We had so much fun. There were so many wonderful photo opportunities and photos taken. We left many behind.

But, we will be back! When you can drive into this . . . with ohs and ahs and wows . . . how could you not go back.
