Spending the rest of the day with Katura brought more walks and sights of beauty. We left the arboretum and drove to an historic site that contains acres of the original hazelnut trees planted in the state. Dorris Ranch contained some beautiful items for photos.

Farm equipment, including a nut harvester.
