A Mountain Dream

The Humphries Family (Dick, Noel, Virginia  & Drew) carefully selected the location of the garden to honor their parents, Dick & Carol Humphries. From this garden they believe they are able to see the ranch on the slope of Mr. Diablo where they grew up. Their choice of name for the garden reflects their dream of another ascent up the dry slope of the mountain and coming upon a creekbed enriched with varied plant colors and textures, under the eye of an eagle perched on a rock. This one-thousand pound eagle, sculpted by Bart Walter, bears the caption, “I am free.”
