More from The Sea Ranch

A week ago I mentioned that I was surprised to discover some forgotten photos from my trip to the Sonoma Coast back in September. I was sure I had posted all my pictures already; but the great thing about carrying three different cameras is that I can capture three times as many images! Today I’m sharing the photos I shot […]

Memory Monday: Fort Hunter Liggett

Today’s batch of images, pulled from what I’ve been calling the Korean photo albums, were actually shot near California’s central coast. Located in the center of Monterey County, Fort Hunter Liggett is the largest US Army Reserve post. These photos were shot 16 August 1980, and thus far, they are the only pictures I’ve found with handwritten notes on the […]

On the Bobcat Trail

I was so certain I had already blogged about exploring the neighborhood trails when we stayed at The Sea Ranch last September — but none of the photos are showing up in my media library. I guess my attempt at being organized has failed me again, but this time I don’t mind so much because it gives me an excuse […]

Memory Monday: Scenes from the mountaintop

These scenic images from the flea market photo albums may depict either Korea or the central part of California — although I’m tending towards California because of the rolling hills and thick layer of valley fog. I was happily surprised to find a descriptive note written on the back of one print (see captioned photo below). That encouraged me to […]

First Day out

I had every intention of taking part in the local First Day Hike scheduled for 8 A.M. last Sunday morning. The weather was cooperative; stormy New Year’s Eve gave way to a sunny, if chilly, New Year’s Day. I had managed to beat back a minor head cold, and the Big Guy was up early, heading out to Folsom Lake […]

Petrified giants

Our final stop within the Petrified Forest National Park was at the Giant Logs Trail; I’ve shared some of my photos from this spot previously, but I shot all these with my phone. We arrived around 12 noon local time — although keeping track of time on this trip got a little confusing, especially since the park doesn’t observe Daylight […]

Winter ponds

On the final day of 2022, I’m looking at some more images from our recent stay in Texas. It did get pretty cold, but the Dallas-Fort Worth area only caught the tailing edge of the winter storm that caused so much misery in the eastern U. S. We had ice but no snow; and by the time we caught our […]

More scenes from the road

There are always plenty of great things to see along the road as we drive north along the narrow and winding Highway 1 through Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Even places I’ve seen hundreds of times are always slowly evolving, like the construction project in Sonoma County near Bodega Bay. I shared photos of the same stretch three months ago when […]
