Along the foothills of Mt. Diablo

In the northern foothills of Mt. Diablo is an area in Walnut Creek called the Shell Ridge Open Space and we started last night's walk at Borges Ranch. We walked about 90 minutes and took the trails to the Castle Rock trail along a winding stream.

These are great open spaces with huge wide open spaces where Bailey can run and we can train for up coming field trials.
The area is very close to the terrain of our next field trial.

Unlike the lower areas of Shell Ridge, the upper areas have cows that must like green foxtails because there are very few in the upper areas.

Pine Creek runs along the Castle Rock trail. The dogs had fun playing in the water.

We came across a nice little Golden Retriever that had a good time playing with Chloe and Bailey.
