A short walk this morning…

I went over to the Cosumnes River Preserve in Galt, CA early this morning to check out their pools and wetlands, but was kind of disappointed.  I couldn’t take Sergeant Margie with me, because dogs aren’t allowed in the preserve; and although the information about the place says the trails are open from dawn to dusk, what they don’t tell you is that the gates don’t open until 9:00… so I had to park my car by a ditch on the side of the road to get to the trails.  I only took one — along the boardwalk through the wetlands — but there wasn’t really anything to see.  Viewing is much better, I’m told,  around November or December when there are a lot of waterfowl migrating.   Today, the area was pretty much empty…  As I say, it was a bit disappointing, but I did get a handful of photos and I did get in some walking, so it wasn’t a total loss.  I’ll try this place again later in the year before doing a full walkabout of it…
