Best of Dog-Friendly Trails, Parks & Beaches

It’s time for Work It Wednesday, and we’re including man’s best friend for today’s workout post 🙂

It’s a little overwhelming to me, actually.  Last week we mentioned Hill Canyon in Camarillo and this week we are highlighting Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa Park in Newbury Park.
