A change in the weather.
There were drastic changes from Trip Two to Trip Three.
All the beautiful falls colors had washed away from the rain that Northern California desperately needed. The vines were now dormant and would stay this way for the next few months.
These are the Cabernet vines at Granite Springs Winery.
The Barbera vines at Barnum Vineyard.
Everything was pretty mellow at both the winery and vineyard. Chris was busy tending to the land.
Both boys were home hanging out with dad.
Ezu and friends were out and about grazing the land.
Slowly but surely, everyone was getting acclimated to me visiting for a couple of days every month.
