On our way back from a family vacation, we stopped by the City of the Ten Thousand Buddhas, a Buddhist monastery and university outside of Ukiah, California.

It was hot (95°F or so) when we got there at 4 in the evening and the sun was bright. The campus was very serene and peaceful. And the first thing we saw as we parked was this peacock resting under a tree.

As we walked to the temple, we met a couple of peahens, also in the shade.

Some of the 10,000 hand shaped Buddhas.

Coming out, we met many more peacocks. They roam free and seem to be accustomed to people. Even my 6yo running excitedly didn't bother this one.

As we wandered around the campus and it got a little cooler, many more peacocks began to come out and move around. Some full body shots and some portraits.
