I thought I’d had better take the camera with me on my walk around Rancho San Rafael yesterday, before our Winter Weather Storm Watch would hit us (today). I wanted to get some “color” pics before the winds knocked off all the leaves. Seems I wasn’t the only one with that idea…lots of folks roaming around with cameras. 🙂
A few May Arboretum Society members led a Spring Equinox Walk last night up at Rancho San Rafael Park/Wilbur D. May Arboretum. We had a short talk given by Bill Carlos, arboretum horticulturist, and Susan Stewart, a county librarian and May Arboretum Society volunteer. It was a bit windy, as usual up in NW Reno, but the sun was out and our Nevada sky was at it’s best. (I’ll post sky and flower photos tomorrow).
HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!
The labyrinth was intiated by the Nevada State Attorney General’s Office, Washoe County District Attorney’s Office and VICTORY (Victims in Crisis, Turmoil or Recovery)…it’s dedicated to victims of violent crime in our community and their loved ones.
WHAT IS A LABYRINTH?
Labyrinths have been used for centuries as tools for healing, meditation, and bringing peace into people’s lives. These patterned circuits offer a place for people of all faiths and beliefs to walk, think, or simply reflect in order to help themselves and their families heal on a personal as well as a community level. They are different from mazes, which are designed to confuse people by confronting them with many entrances, endings and choices.
