The best things are the ones you don’t expect. And, I didn’t expect Rush Ranch to be so beautiful and fun to shoot. We went there after we visited the Suisun Wildlife Rescue Center. Photo buddy Laura suggested this and Marlene and I were agreeable. Oh, did we have fun, and we didn’t even take any of the nature paths. We stayed and shot old equipment, etc.
Rush Ranch is a working ranch, with cattle and sheep grazing under a wildlife habitat management program. Prior to its purchase by the Solano County Farmlands and Open Space Foundation in 1988, this ranch was owned by the Rushes (a pioneer family).
Now it is open to the public with three hiking trails that take you through different ecosystems. These are the trails we didn’t have time to walk. So we need to go back. Who knows what we’ll see, especially when we don’t expect to.
Meanwhile, enjoy these images from the immediate property.

Nicely done. Tower views are well captured. I like the zig zag of the fence image.
Thank you coach! We do have to go back there.
Beautiful pictures of a very nice hiking area! I love the idea of the ranch. Amazing how we can find beauty, even in something as rusty as an old truck. Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks Lucy. Going shooting today. A Civil War re-enactment. You have a great weekend too.
