We skipped all of that and headed up to the local man-made lake to hike the trails that meander through the foothills. It was a gorgeous day and we spent 3 hours out there. Can you spot our shadows in the first photo?

I took this time-lapse 360 when we were at the top of the vista. From Summer to Winter, the foothills are blanketed with dry, tall grass and oak trees. The river runs through this area and ends at the Dam with the lake. ** video has music
