After the Gibraltar climb, I headed back over the mountain and as the sun was setting, so too was it setting on yet another very enjoyable trip to southern California. Above, driving out of Solvang via Chalk Hill, one of my favorite views.
Along Ballard Canyon, a new winery with building is rising from the fields. Many of the locals hate the addition of another winery and the traffic it brings.
Farther along Ballard Canyon Road, a Bison in the background and some king of steer in the foreground.
Of course, normally on the final day, I would mostly be depressed but this trip, I aint gonna go to Ohio but to sunny and hot Arizona. I'm really looking forward to that. Temps in the 80's I can handle!
