I frequently run at the reservoir up my street because it is safe, no traffic and close. It does involve running "laps" which can be tiresome - but I'm still enjoying running in this spot. I took my daughters for a nature walk up there the other day and thought I'd share some pics.
Daffodils on my street (for Nancy - I'd send them to ya if I could)!
My street dead ends at this pistachio field. There is a dirt road that I take around it that leads to the reservoir.
The reservoir....where we find lots of fun animals such as ducks, geese, turtle, and beavers.
Wooded trail along the backside of the reservoir.
There are also the lovely, rolling hills that surround to look at.
