St. Helena

Hiking along Ritchey Creek in Bothe-Napa Valley State Park.
Giant woodwardia ferns growing along the creek.

Vegetation was quite varied and the forest quite birdy but you really had to watch out for poison oak!

Stop for refreshments at Charles Krug Winery. This huge old oak dominates the entrance.
Pure history...plus I was the only person tasting so I got to taste a couple of extra wines that were really wow!

At the beaver pond on the valley trail.

It was nice here, out of the wind.
