I’ve been sticking pretty close to home lately while still trying to get out of the house for some exercise. It remains a challenge to find local trails empty of other people — but I really need that bit of escape and solitude, even for just a few hours throughout the week.
As I was driving out to Folsom Lake this morning I stopped at a gas station to top up my car’s tank and give the windshield a quick cleaning. It was only after I’d got back on the road that I noticed the service station’s worn-out squeegee had left a bunch of water lines across the glass — my windshield […]
Some of my many images from the Beek’s Bight area of Folsom Lake. This occasion was a shore fishing trip in November 2015, in the middle of a six-year drought.

It might be an unexpected message or something accidentally left behind — or even a colorful rock that I’ve probably trod on hundreds of times without ever noticing before.
