Sonoma County Regional Parks #5: Bothe-Napa and Shollenberger

The truth is that neither of the parks mentioned in the title of this post is a regional park, and one isn’t even in Sonoma County! We’ve  visited so many lovely open spaces lately that I’m using this post as a catch-all for all our recent outdoor photos. The featured image above was taken by Dick at one of our favorite walking places, Laguna de Santa Rosa Regional Park in Sebastopol.

Our most recent “finds” in the park department are Bothe-Napa State Park in Napa County, and Shollenberger Park, which belongs to the city of Petaluma, and sits adjacent to the Petaluma River.
