The scene caught my eye. This is an iPhone photo edited with
Snapseed. This is the look I imagined when I made the photo.

State Route 25

December 10th, 2020  |   Comments Off on State Route 25

If you’re traveling to Pinnacles National Park and headed for the east
gate you’ll have an opportunity to check out Highway 25.
On a Monday in December it was nearly empty. No cars ahead.
No cars behind. It feels like old California
It’s road trip ready. Small towns (Tres Pinos population 476), cattle ranches, an occasional vineyard and lonely trees. Not yet an offically designated “scenic highway” it certainly fits my definition.
All photos made with a Polaroid One Step2.

Alice’s Birthday

December 8th, 2020  |   Comments Off on Alice’s Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated Alice’s birthday at Pinnacles National Park.
We hiked a challenging loop up to the High Peaks area. 
We saw California Condors in flight, amazing vistas, rock formations and colorful lichen.
Volcanic rocks formed 23 million years ago!
Happy Birthday Alice! I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate!
