A Local Ramble

Bruce and I got out for a ramble late this afternoon. We like to cross the Uvas Reservoir dam and walk on the other side for about 30 minutes then turn around and come back. It's level and quiet as the trail (really an access road) follows the reservoir in and out of the little canyons and arroyos.

Our favorite turn around spot is the home of one of my favorite trees, a spreading Buckeye. Beneath it's boughs is a small seasonal stream, happily running now, one of dozens of small drainages which carries water to the reservoir.
