Pictured above is part of ranch property in Lompoc which is one of the small villages in Santa Barbara County. It has many ranches. Not far from there on the other side of the highway is a blueberry ranch where you can pick your own. Right now it is closed for the season.
Every so often we head out of town. We enjoy seeing Nature untouched by humans. Thursday morning we did just that. It was a beautiful sunny day, the temperatures reached a high of 68 F. For us, it a restful moment away, Nature becomes a visual meditation.
“We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods
