Hiking Close to Home

With the COVID19 restrictions well underway in California, we've been staying close to home. But that doesn't mean we've been staying indoors 24/7. In fact, we've tried to get out and walk a few miles each day, both because it's good for our physical health--but also because it's good for our mental state.


And it's not like it hasn't been pleasant. We've discovered some new places to walk, and been delighted with some of the scenery we've seen, even when it's just a beautiful sky at dusk over our little town. The shot above is not far from our house, along the Napa River.


And this photo was taken yesterday as we walked along a road in the hills above town:

And finally, as we headed back home tonight, we caught this view of the river at sunset.

We hope you are able to get out and into the fresh air these days, if only to walk along the streets of your town. And we hope that you, too, are finding a few jewels hidden along the way.
