The Horse Trails

There are five or six different loops in this horse-friendly park.  I've only explored two so far.  I haven't seen any horses out here yet, but there are always fresh hoof prints in the mud, and plenty of horse farms nearby.  I've pulled out my Pacific Coast Tree Finder for tomorrow morning, so hopefully when I post tomorrow I will be able to name these trees with confidence.  I'm guessing that the yellow leaves with the brown spots might be big leaf maple, but I'll confirm that next time I post them.  Anyway, it seems to be about peak time for color, so I'll try to get a few more trips out here this week, while I've got a another color to balance all this green.  Not that I need an excuse...it's so peaceful out here.  This will probably be a regular walking spot for me and Clover!

What a beautiful part of the world. I can see why you love walking there, I would too. I love Autumn colour.
