We entered through a red gate into the side yard and just kept following pathways.
We crossed the back yard under the deck to find this patio.
We crossed the stone bridge and traversed the slope.
And then steps beckoned us farther down.
The end of the road.
But still more to explore.
There's the corner of the deck, far above us.
The rushing water eventually feeds the koi pond.
Back up around the other side of the house.
We sneaked a peek over the potting yard fence, and found bonsai!
And then, because we asked, we were allowed to go through the house to the deck,
and get a glimpse of their view of The Mountain.
