Squaw Valley Park in Snow


 







A few days ago the world was white.  I went for a walk in our local little park, Squaw Valley.  I found some little tracks on the trail and followed them to this magical little spot where the branches arched over, making a tunnel.

Bodega Head - Pacific Coast




Ok, I'm finally done showing you Bodgea Head.  It's a place I truly can't get out of my head, nor would I want to.

Bodega Head - Paths


The paths at Bodega Head are sandy, cut between many varieties of wildflowers and succulents. including ice plant, which has been a favorite of mine since I first saw them on the California coast in my childhood.

Bodega Head - Hand-Holding



I might not recommend you take your four-year-old to Bodega Head, as it is a long way down, and there are no safety measures.  But frankly, that's part of the reason I like it there.  It's just a path set on cliffs, and with that comes a sense of adventure and dangerous beauty.  That, however, could be a little too dangerous for small children, so I recommend hand-holding at all times.  Grandpa did that for me, so I could take photographs, and Wyle was so good.  We explained the danger of falling off a cliff, and so she took it very seriously.

Secluded Beach


From Bodega Head you can spot secluded little stretches of beach.  How you get there, I don't know, but surely some enterprising residents of the area enjoy them on warmer days.
