Sedona Star

Climbing around on rocks is the thing to do in Sedona. The timing for this hike was perfect for me to get the sun right in the middle of Cathedral Rock. The bright light was a perfect path to follow to our destination.

Sempervirens Falls

California has seen a lot of rain this year, so much that we are out of a drought! I celebrated by checking out Sempervirens Falls for the first time. Big Basin Redwoods State Park never disappoints, and this waterfall is easy to get to and great to photograph.

Spring Is Coming Back

It is starting to feel a lot like spring here recently. I hiked this hillside awhile ago, but it reminds me of today with all of the green from the rain and new growth in the trees.

The Middle of the Rock

The hike up to the saddle of Cathedral Rock isn’t far, but it is way up above where you start. The vantage point isn’t expected until you pop out at the top, and get a nice look at the rock on each side of you and the view down below.

Misty Layers

The clouds were breaking up and some very late fall colors were still hanging on. Everything lined up to give this shot a whole lotta things going on!

Talus Cave

What’s a Talus Cave? Am I making up a whole new type of cave for my enjoyment? No, I am not. This is a unique cave made by boulders falling into a deep canyon, leaving an open space below. People walk through this cave, and under boulders hanging above your head, for fun. Also bats live in these caves. Good times.

The Narrow Path

Rocky Mountain National Park earned its name on Fern Lake Trail, with lots of rough rocks every way that you look. We started our hike at Bear Lake, and after some good climbing the view opened up into this gorge with mountain peaks in all directions.

Pirates Cove

As you hike through these hills along the Pacific there are lots of ups and downs. This is one of the steeper ravines that you cross, known as Pirates Cove. The pirates seem to like this place and so do I!

Slug on a Stick

I found this banana slug just sliding around the floor of the redwood forest. He can’t really see, just detect light and movement, which might explain why he thought it was a good idea to go over this stick but ended up searching around in the air for his next move.

Into the Trees

I love trails like this. The brightly lit green of the trees almost makes it feel like you are walking through a tunnel in the forest.
