Fog

We woke up to fog this morning. Fog is one of my favorite things about winter in the Sacramento Valley. We don’t get the heavy tule fog the San Joaquin Valley south of Sacramento is known, for but we still get our share, especially in the southeastern part of Davis because we are closer to the Yolo Bypass than the rest of town.

Our fog usually burns off by mid-morning so I quickly grabbed the camera and headed out for a walk along the Putah Creek greenbelt that forms the southern edge of town. I only encountered a few bicyclists but had the path to myself otherwise. What a peaceful way to start a Sunday!
