Walk With Me: II

My work commute is an hour drive each way. Not fun. The good news is that it puts me out of town and within walking distance of tucked away walking trails filled with old oaks, small ponds and flocks of birds. Walk with me through some protected trails in Roseville, CA.

Fifty years ago, there was nothing here but miles of oak trees.

A suburban city sprouted, but someone had the foresight to set aside designated open space – areas where natural beauty would remain for the generations to come.


It remains largely unspoiled – save for a few forgotten or visiting treasures.


Oh to be as free as a bird and stay all day.

I am a nascent gardener, rescuer, and photographer, chronicling the journey of the dogs at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary near Sacramento, CA - and the Memorial Garden we have devoted to them.

  1. Every photo was gorgeous. I wanted to reach out and touch everything. Every time I see another developer come in and clear out land like this to plop down some more McMansions, it breaks my heart. We live in Fair Oaks and when we bought our old little house there was 20 acres of your photos across the street. We loved it! Now stands a big housing development that we have to deal with. The little neighborhood was devastated and tried to fight it but the developers had the money.
    Thing I’ll take my golden, Rosie, and go to the park today. Play in some nature before its all gone.

  2. I love that someone had the foresight to leave some of the land remain unblemished by suburban spread! I wish someone would do the same here! But, noooooo. And with that said, I’ll stop before I get on my soapbox.
