Sacramento Delta Pedal Escape

When Sacramento heats up, I head for the Delta, minutes away from downtown!  Nothing more refreshing than an early morning ride along country roads:  glimpses of herons and egrets vaulting and diving from time to time, vineyards, beautiful water reflections in meandering sleepy sloughs...great ride, nice and cool!

My friend, Audrey, pedaling a hidden levee road.


Water, water, everywhere!


Safflower blossoms glimpsed in the distance.


 I'm always drawn to the sculpted beauty found in bare branches...


Future wine...soaking up the California sun!
