An early storm in December brought snow to the mountain areas around California. For many years, I wanted to go to Yosemite National Park in the winter to take snow photos, but it never seemed to happen. This year, I went for it. The weather forecast showed a couple of clear days in between storms … Continue reading Yosemite Winter Wonderland
After posting the earlier photo slideshow from the Pacific Northwest, I remembered I had created a similar video from a road trip in the Eastern Sierra in 2019. On that trip I was photographing the fall colors in the area. I was traveling for about nine days on that trip. It works best if you … Continue reading Eastern Sierra Photo Slideshow
I assembled a photo slideshow of photos I took while on my road trip in the Pacific Northwest in May and June of this year. The video is about 5 minutes long and the musical soundtrack is the Cat Stevens song, “On the Road to Find Out.” For the best enjoyment, click on the “Watch … Continue reading Pacific Northwest Photo Slideshow
Friday, July 30, 2021 On Sunday, July 19, I headed out to Spicer Meadows Reservoir campground for a four-night camping trip. This was the second year I was able to join my brother and his families for their annual campout at the group campground at the lake. Last year was my first year and it … Continue reading Dry camping at Spicer Meadows – what could go wrong?
Wednesday (June 29): Yesterday morning, I said good bye to Fran and Jerry, the A-frame rally organizers along with a few other attendees and hit the road about 10:30AM. It was already heating up and the weather forecasts were announcing “excessive heat warnings” for the day. Highway 395 is a major north/south thoroughfare on the … Continue reading Coming Full Circle – Final Stop at Jackson Meadows Reservoir

The rallys are normally in Oregon and Washington, but this one was planned at Eagle Lake in the Lassen National Forest because of availability during Covid. Thirteen A-frame trailers with … Continue reading A-frame Rally at Eagle Lake
Friday (June 25): Yesterday was the second travel day to get to Eagle Lake. I left Tulelake about 10:00 AM after a rough night. One of the car alarms in the RV parking area kept going off, repeating until about 11:00PM. Around 12:45AM, I realized I was awake and noticed flashing red lights penetrating the … Continue reading Travel Day – from Tulelake to Eagle Lake
Wednesday, (June 23): Another beautiful sunny morning in Prineville and my last day in Oregon. I got an earlier start than usual and got moving before 10:00 AM. I was considering making a push and doing the whole distance to the Lassen area in one day. The idea fizzled when I learned that no camping … Continue reading Travel Day + Photo Journal – Tulelake, CA
Tuesday (June 22): The Smith Rock State Park is located about 20 miles from Prineville. The park reopened less than a month ago after being closed for more than a year due to Covid. I spent a couple hours at Smith Rock hiking the trails this morning. After last night’s thunderstorm and balmy night, it … Continue reading Photo Journal – Smith Rock State Park
