Our first weekend free in many months. If you have time, come with me on my walk to “The Grandmother tree”, a very distorted redwood tree on the east side of Sonoma Mountain above “Fern Lake”.
The Sonoma Developmental Center is full of history, vintage buildings with surprising details, and rugged land.
Looking at the very large orchard in its final stage is quite fascinating. This 10-15 acres I understand was planted in the 20s or 30s. A farmer would say the “crop is finishing”. So often humans hurry-up the process, clearing the debris and turn the soil. It’s nice to see what nature does without such help.
I was home in 2 and a-half-hours and saw only 2 people the whole way. Beautiful day and I will certainly need a bath to soak in tonight.
