    Hiking at Daley Ranch

    Had a day off and the weather was perfect for a hike, so I headed out to a place called Daley Ranch . There's the old ranch house, some run down buildings, and many miles of trails for everyone to use. The house is currently not open to the public, but the land is.

    I took Frankie too, here's the thread with her pictures: Frankie on a hike

    Here's the non-Frankie pictures of the hike:

    More coming:
    Thank you Amy!

    Another view of the barn. I really liked the old buildings; just wonder how long they'll continue to stand:


    Some of the other old buildings:




    This one was so cool. The water company provided a tank and pump for potable drinking water. There's also a troft and bucket for horses and dogs:


    Still some more:
    Thank you Amy!

    I'm going to try and merge these together into a panorama:




    The reflection below the sun is the ocean way off in the distance:


    And lastly some sunset pictures as we were leaving:




    Sorry for so many pictures. Just had a lot of fun out there, it was so peaceful.
    Thank you Amy!

    I enjoyed the photos of the old buildings. A friend and I recently spent a good 2 hours taking photos of some old railroad cars, for some reason old structures are rather fascinating. The sunset photos turned out very nice too!

    Beautiful pics! I love taking pics like old barns and trees. Looks like you had a great time. I love the ranch house.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    The tarantulas are kind of hit and miss. They are out in the hills, but they seem to stay off the trails. So I'd say they are common, but people don't see them all that much. They like the thick brush and fallen foliage.

    Here's some pictures that I took today. Got some better shots of the house itself:


    From a ridge on the other side. There was no way I could have got this picture without the zoom on the new camera.



    Had to leave in a hurry because the weather turned really quick.


    The rest of the pictures are here: Daley Ranch 10/13
    Thank you Amy!
