6 miles in the Garin Dry Creek Pioneer Regional Park

Spring is the best time to go on a relentless hike in one of the east bay parks, to catch up with the sun and green hills before they all turn harsh and bare.. So we are off to the trail and suddenly this beautiful old barn house came surprisingly in front of us. Lately, I have been obsessed with all things rustic and natural: trees, grass, wood, wild flowers, jars, milk bottles, burlap, craft paper, raffia, etc.  I guess it partially attributes to me living a  natural and organic life. As I was standing there, my mind was filled with ideas and pictures. The charm of this area almost made me want to change the location of my special day,  had we not booked the site yet. 

Anyways, here are the quotes of this week for inspirations.

I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.

-by John Muir

Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.

-by Hal Borland

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.

-by Henry David Thoreau
