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.

Moving Up The Narrows

Hiking up The Narrows in Zion requires getting wet. I’m normally looking for any excuse to get in the water with a tripod to get a shot of water like this flowing by, but for this hike it was required instead of optional.

Umm, Can I Help You?

After spending all day kayaking a safe (for them) distance from many sea otters, this guy had a unique expression on his face. I think he looks like he wants to know what is up with me instead of the other way around.

Rushing Water

This may look like a relaxing place to hang out by a waterfall, but it was not. Standing here meant I was exposed to the full spray of the waterfall. I had to clean my lens and immediately take the shot before it had water drops all over it again. I could have taken this from the side, as other photographers did after walking by me and looking at me like I was crazy, but I had to have that big fallen tree sticking right out at me.

Going Green

November sometimes means watching the landscape go from green to white. Here, the rain allows what was brown to turn to green. I hiked Mount Tamalpais to get my fill of the lush foliage that grows in the canyons.

1953

I wasn’t around back then, but this bridge has been working hard since that year to collect moss.

Mountain Moss

Brightly colored yellow and orange moss covers the rocks on top of Round Top in the Sierra Nevadas. Not exactly what I was expecting to find at the end of this long winter hike, but it certainly made the cold rocks more interesting.


High Road

On a hike back into town we chose the high road, this trail, and that was certainly a wise choice.
