Camera, check! Lenses, check! Waist pack for when walking, check! Hat, check! All ready for a nice stroll with photo pod buddies along the trail at the UC Davis Arboretum. It’s been a long time since we’ve been to this end of the arboretum, so I was especially excited to see scenery I hadn’t seen in a couple of years. The arboretum didn’t disappoint.
There’s a lake where Putah Creek widens. It’s simply beautiful and one tree drew my attention.
And here’s the lake from the other side.
In the Spring, there are more blossoms on trees, but the bridges and pathway colors were beautiful.
One bridge had locks fastened on its wires.
It was serene and beautiful. People were relaxing like this young couple.
We did drive to the other end of the arboretum. We couldn’t walk because part was closed off. This was the end we were more familiar with. The flower garden was almost bare but the light on the gazebo offered great shadows and patterns.
Just as I checked everything before I took off on our walk, I checked it all again as I put the camera, lenses, waist pack and hat in the car. It was another great photo outing.

I didn’t realize UC Davis had an arboretum. I love downtown Sacramento though, I’ve been out there a few times. I’ve got a couple arboretums in my neck of the woods on the short list for some poetry writing trips.
Thanks Joe! I’m not sure my first reply went through so I’m thanking you again. I appreciate your reading my blog.
Stunning Anne, what a truly beautiful spot and you’ve captured it perfectly. It looks so peaceful and serene.
Thanks Tina! I think round trip it’s a little over 3 miles and beautiful.
