Y is for York Mountain Road in Templeton, California

We discovered York Mountain Road one day a few years ago when we were trying to find York Mountain Winery. York Mountain Road is a loop with both ends on Highway 46 West. Most of it is surrounded by oak trees. A creek runs through part of it. It's one of my favorite places to walk in the summer because it's shady. On one walk   I was able to capture this squirrel high in a tree.



Here is part of the creek that runs through the east side of York Mountain Road

On the left is one of the many oak trees that line York Mountain Road. This one appears to be pretty old. I believe the tree beside the creek in the photo above is a willow.

We finally discovered the historic York Mountain Tasting Room, which has now been replaced by Epoch Winery, on our second York Mountain Walk . You can see it and the old barn that was behind it on the Zazzle products below. The barn is a poster. The Tasting Room is on a jigsaw puzzle.
