Today was a travel day and includes yesterday, Monday 6/19 and today 6/20. I made the return trip today so I'm finally back on the central coast just in time to avoid 100+ degree weather in the Sierra's. Good timing on my part. :) One of the reasons I settled on Penn Valley CA as a place to buy a second home, besides the fact that I already own a home in the best place in California right here in the SYV so had to pick second best, is PV has this amazing walking, biking/horse back riding trail that goes through the little town from down town and all the restaurants etc. to one of the best natural parks and off leash dog parks in the state and also the rodeo grounds. I can ride my horse to the arena. I can drive my golf cart to breakfast. It is amazing to watch how many adults and children make use of this path every day all year long. Sure I had to give up a little dirt as did my neighbors but the result is a community asset so well loved and used by all, it was totally worth it for all the neighbors along here who gave up a little road frontage to make it happen. I remain hopeful the SYV will make a long path joining our contiguous communities a reality some day.  Ventura and Ojai are a wonderful example of how to do just this (see the article on that here). The SYV would be even more perfect if we had the same community asset. I'm hopeful enough people will get together to make something like this possible in the SYV one day. Here is a photo of the trail right in front of my house up north. Well loved by all.
