Laguna Creek Trail: Elk Grove, California

One of our favorite local trails meanders through the city, tucked in between neighborhoods and underneath railroad tracks, behind city streets. You can see the homes behind this pond, but aside from that, you forget you're in the city while walking this peaceful trail.

And isn't that the point?

Winter in Yosemite

We've been to Yosemite now so many times, it really feels like home. We've been in spring, fall, summer, and now....we can add winter to that list!
