Hitting the dusty trails (and open space)

       The Aug. 17 Gala in the Garden, an annual event sponsored by the Trails and Open Space Coalition at Rock Ledge Ranch, was attended by about 400 people. The event included a catered barbecue dinner, a silent auction and bluegrass music by the String Dudes (in the enclosure in rear of photo). The guests included Old West reenactors, such as those in foreground left and eating at far right.
