For our Photo Safari this week, Joy and I decided to head out to a place we generally only hike once a year. It 's a working ranch that also has about 19 miles of hiking trails. We only did 7, but it was still a great day.
I am not going to try to come up with a fanciful name this time around. I'm going to call it what is was, The Walton Ranch Hike because that's where we were. It was such a gorgeous place to hike that even if we hadn't taken one single solitary photograph it would still have been a good day. But no worries. I have photos :)
As I said, it was a gorgeous place to be, although we did have to be careful to dodge cow pies and horse pucky the entire time. Small price to pay. You want to see some beautiful scenery? Here you go:
Most of the ponds were just lovely empty oasis's, but a few were occupied. One of these was downright scary:
Because it is, as I said, a working ranch there were a lot of fences, and I found them to be very photogenic! Took a crazy number of photos of fences. I'm so weird. Here's a few:
Took some bird photos but honestly, none of them are very good. I'll post a few anyway. The best of the worst:
Not many flowers but we were shocked to find some blooming orange trees! Not maintained, just either growing wild, or the remnant of an old orchard. Either way, Oranges! Wow!
Let's see what else, we saw roughly a zillion dragonflies but I only got a photo of two. And then one gorgeous spider web:
And I suppose the rest can just be tucked into the Rando Files. Here we go:
I guess that's about it for the Walton Ranch Hike. It was a good 'un for sure! Joy and I had a Great Time (as we always do). Hope you enjoyed coming along for the ride.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
