Yesterday, my wife, Hannah, my dear friend, Noah, and I had a beautiful day and it all took place right here in the Ukiah Valley. We began the day by going for a hike along the Valley View trail in the Cow Mountain area. The hike was about five miles and afforded spectacular views of the Ukiah Valley. We worked up a good appetite just in time for lunch at the 10,000 Bhudas vegetarian cafe; some of the best vegetarian Chinese food I’ve ever had. We then did a nice round of wine tasting at the Parducci Winery, one of the oldest wineries in the valley. We then went home and took a nice nap before going out to see the third film of the Ukiah International Wildlife Film Festival; “White Falcon, White Wolf.” It was beautifully shot footage of animal life on one of the most northernly islands of Canada. All in all, a fabulous day in Ukiah!
