Photos: Fine weather and outdoor pursuits in Berkeley

Off The Grid food trucks, horse racing — and hats — at Golden Gate Fields, by s. jo

With some gorgeous fall weather, it was a weekend of outdoor pursuits in Berkeley with the Spice of Life Festival in the Gourmet Ghetto, Off The Grid at Golden Gate Fields, and a general appreciation for the beauty of the nature that surrounds us. Here’s a taste of all of the above by Berkeleyside contributing photographers Nancy Rubin, s. jo., Ira Serkes, D.H. Parks, and seaangle12.
