Spring has sprung in Northern California! Know how I know (besides the obvious almond trees that are finishing up their short-lived bloom)? The grass is green. Yep, we've hit that wonderful (or horrible if you suffer from seasonal allergies like my poor husband) period here in Sacramento after the threat of frost has passed and before the grass goes back to its more common color - brown.
This week I had the pleasure of photographing two gorgeous German Shepherds, Ike and Amira, for my Tails of Sacramento book (I promise I'm almost done writing/photographing it - in fact, I'm anticipating a release in mid-May. If you haven't ordered your copy yet, you can get it $25 off the retail price now through the end of March here). They were such awesome models, and we had a nice time exploring a small area of River Bend Park.
If you haven't been to River Bend Park, I highly suggest you check it out, especially if your pup is a water dog! The park consists of more than 400 acres of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, and it's just across the bridge from the Arden Rapids. And of course, right now, the grass along the trails is so luscious and green!
