Napa Valley - Celebrating Our 12 Years Together



04 • 29 • 09     •     Personal

Jeff and I went to Napa Valley for two reasons, one was to attend my very dear friend's wedding and the other was to celebrate our 12 years together. We typically don't celebrate our years together but this was quite special. We arrived in Calistoga known for wineries, hot springs, mud baths, spa treatments and outdoor activities. Jeff and I aren't into the spa treatments but chose to spend every waking moment exploring the outdoors. Here is a list of the things we did. Visited a petrified forest the largest in the world, went to Napa State Reserve for horse back riding and the Jack London Ranch for another day of horse back riding - 3 hrs of country and saw a 1500 year old redwood tree. We rented a bike for half a day and rode back country roads which was absolutely stunning, two wine tastings, scenic driving, ice cream everyday, visited a geyser, explored the small town of St. Helena and had lunch with friends, finished the days with dinner and wine and hot jacuzzi. Jeff and I took a lot of pictures of us having fun, normally there are never pics of me since I am camera shy - I know it's silly.
We were sad to leave and already miss our new friend Dominic who was our horse back riding guide for two days and owns the
Triple Horse Creek Outfit - 3 breath takingt locations. If you ever visit Napa, I recommend riding with them. The horses are treated so well and are so loved and live in a beautiful environment.

Second day of riding at the Jack London Ranch 1 hour outside of Napa. This horse is a beauty - she loved to eat the wild purple flowers along the trail.
