Back to Exploring “My Territory” on Foot
North San Luis Obispo County has a wealth of different scenes. From the beach at Cambria to a covered bridge in Paso Robles and all the wine country in between, there is plenty of variety for those who want to explore on foot. I hope you will join me on a quick visual recap of my last few photo walks.
