Hike - Railroad Track @ Asti with Katie (out and back)
I have had a couple of strong workout the last couple of days, so I took it easy today with a hike along the old railroad tracks at Asti, Ca.

I hadn't been down there for a long time, but in the past it was always a fun (but short) hike in the Fall because of the changing colors in the vineyards, oaks, walnuts and cottonwood trees. It's still a little early for the Fall colors, but Katie had a good time jumping deer and flushing quail and I came upon plenty of interesting stuff.

Time: 00:42:00

At the crossing at Old School House Road.

The farm workers got their own little cacti/squash garden going.

A fuckin' llama?

Thistles.

The old overgrown Southern Pacific Railway.

Old Railroad spike.

Wild Black Walnuts. The meat is hard to extract, but man are they tasty!
