Our most recent hike out to Avery’s Pond (via the Rattlesnake Bar entrance to Folsom Lake) left us a little bit depressed when we saw how low the water levels were in the pond. The lake itself was nearly full, so it was a surprise to find the pond lower than we could ever remember seeing it. The photos I […]
Most of the photographers hoping to capture the lupine at Folsom Lake right now seem to make a beeline for Beeks Bight, accessible through the Granite Bay entrance on the north fork. Very much like last spring, when we had a genuine superbloom, the social media posts have popped up and the news helicopters have been hovering. Visitors have been […]
I realize 2019 isn’t that long ago, but I’m sometimes surprised as I go back through my image files at the photos I’ve never used. Of course there are plenty of images that aren’t good enough to use (I have loads of those, and I’m sure I’m not the only one). But my pictures this week are ones that seem […]
A few more images from the New York Creek area of Folsom Lake. All the photos are from April 2022 — except for the doe, which I spotted in January.

All of these images were shot, with varying degrees of success, with my Canon Rebel T1i and a 50mm lens. I’ve labeled all the flowers I’m fairly certain of; I’m still trying to identify the […]
I shared some photos a couple of days ago showing the view from up on the ridge above Folsom Lake as seen on the last day of March — but I forgot to include the three pictures I shot with my phone. I also managed to forget about my earlier visit to the same spot on March 14. So here […]
If I have a free day in the spring, it’s hard for me to resist going out to Folsom Lake — and this is one of my favorite spots this time of year. Yes, I sometimes run into a few people, many of them on mountain bikes. But that’s okay, we can co-exist! And really, the views up here are […]
I have returned many times to Rattlesnake Bar on Folsom Lake for the hike to Avery’s pond. Last Thursday I shared a few 2006 images from this beautiful area, so this week I’m jumping ahead 10 years with photos from a hike we took on April 1, 2016. I previously posted some of these pictures back in May 2018 (see […]
