Its beauty changes with the season and its only about 1/2 hour away. After Laura, Linda and I left the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area, we went on to the UC Davis Arboretum.
I’ve been there several times and have posted images. But, there’s always something new to be found whether it’s wildlife or plants. We go there to walk and shoot, but there’s more going on. From their website, here is what they have and offer to the general public:
- “100 acres of beautiful gardens for active recreation or peaceful contemplation
- Documented plant collections for teaching and research
- Exhibits and demonstration plantings where visitors can learn about sustainable gardening for the Central Valley
Guided tours and family programs led by UC Davis experts
- Plant sales with great plants for Central Valley gardens
- Volunteer and internship opportunities”
The loop is 3.5 miles, and you’ll find people walking and riding bikes. Families enjoy the scenery, bring picnic lunches and you can find students studying during school. And, it changes with each season.
This trip, we caught the last of the Fall colors, a few birds and the crisp cool air. Take a look.

Oh, I love the arboretum. I used to go there a lot when I was a student. I took my hubby there once and we walked our dog. He couldn’t believe I had such a nice campus with this amazing arboretum. We’ll have to go here together sometime. This would be a great place to meet up when we are passing through. There are some horses we could snap and some other structures, to do something a bit different. You caught it at a very nice time. The water reflections are gorgeous. The Egret captures are amazing, and the blue heron.
I think the last time I was there was late spring when everything was blooming. It was amazing. I’ve also taken pictures of the horses. Yes, when you’re traveling through, let me know.

Let’s do it in the spring for sure. Maybe we should do buildings in the winter.
There’s the state capitol building here. It’s actually pretty inside. I’ll email you.
the take off and in flight pictures are excellent 🙂
