Exploring the Foothills

We finally got out on the ATV this weekend! Such a beautiful day to explore the back country. Even the cows were there to welcome us. Though she was a little shy and wanted us to blur her image if we were going to put it up on the internet. I complied. Had nothing to do with being a bad photo.

We rode up to a nice spot with a view of New Melones Reservoir. With all the snow we had this winter, the Reservoir is full. I'm sure it's busy with lots of boats this weekend also.

While the views from above were amazing, the highlight was the views of the Stanislaus River. This photo doesn't do justice. Just the sound alone was breathtaking.

We continued riding into the sunset, enjoying the evening, enjoying the wind in our face and enjoying being among the trees.

I know how important these times are for you, Mad, out in Nature. I love your story about the cow photo and that you're sticking to it. :D

Happy July 4th!
