There was a lot of snow in the Sierra this winter.  Yet, still it’s time to really start thinking about hiking the high country.  So many trips to chose from where splendor awaits.  Here, we’re starting the hike out of Rae Lakes, a beauty of a spot in the Eastern Sierra within the boundary of Kings Canyon National Park.  Coming in from the east will take you over a couple of high passes in the 11,000 foot range.  Make sure to bring plenty of water.

Wandering down the path from zabriskie point gets you into the beautiful folds of golden canyon.  Hard to believe that in this desert land there is or was so much water coming down that it carved and eroded the hills here into all these amazing formations.  I was able to wander around in here for a couple hours with nary a soul around.  Beautiful.

When traveling along an ocean you’re never too far away from an old lighthouse.  At one point I’m sure they were quite useful and necessary.  These day, I wonder if they’re used at all.  I mean don’t all ships have gps by now?  I don’t really know, but I do know I’m glad they’re still around.  They add a certain charm and elegance to the scene.  They bring a sense of place and history.  I’m attracted to that kind of thing.  Whenever I’m on a coastal jaunt I always seek them out.  This one’s in central Oregon.

Walking in the Hollywood hills late one night, I was biding my time, waiting for a peek down into the city with an unencumbered view.  This one isn’t quite as sweeping as I’d envisioned but I rather like the rolling frame.  You never know what you’ll get if you simply keep walking.

I was quite tired after flying into Oakland from Texas.  I wanted to get home and be done with the travel schedule.  But, here I was with having to make another quick decision.  A perfect storm was hovering over the City.  The clouds were breaking a bit and the sun was showering some light their way.  So, I quickly decided to get on the Bay bridge and over to Treasure Island where I’d have good unfettered access to the scene.  I was just hoping the clouds would stay parted and there would be enough sunlight shining through to make a difference in the image.  Storms are always so exciting.  It was certainly worth the trip.

What a great time of the year and what a pristine place to view some of the remaining color that fall so humbly bestows upon us.  It’s a real treat to be able to wander along the roads of the eastern Sierra for just one purpose; observing the beauty of nature’s change of season.  The bright and alive green of summer slowly starts to change and before long becomes a vibrant, intense explosion of yellows and gold’s with just a touch of everlasting green, adding just the right amount of contrast to the road less traveled.  There were not many people traversing this patch of roadway on this day.  That’s just fine with me.  It makes this little stretch of heaven just that much more inviting.

Halloween’s almost here and I can’t help but think of the ghoulishness of a good cemetery.  It still light when walking around Bonaventure, but still it was great to explore.  Plenty of interesting creepiness with the huge monuments and Spanish moss.  Boo!
