Nojoqui Falls and Fall Wine Country

We will be meeting at the park at Noon.
If anyone is interested in carpooling
Meet in Santa Maria at 11am
Meet in the Wal Mart Parking Lot...all the way across the lot from Wal Mart, close to Bradley Road (if you were walking out of the wal mart main entrance, you would go all the way across the parking lot, close to the quiznos, game stop, fantastic sams, etc.)

After photographing the waterfall and area around the park, we will work our way through Solvang to Santa Ynez and end up at a winery that has some beautiful scenery. It is called: Roblar. Located on Roblar Rd and Hwy 154. Anyone interested in wine tasting is welcome to partake.

Here is the link and directions to the park:

Save the date: Saturday November 7th will be a photo outing to the Santa Ynez Valley.
