Thursday I headed to Crater Lake, and surrounding areas, with two goals. I failed to reach either goal.
My first goal was to snowshoe to Muir Creek Falls from the Claude Lewis Trailhead parking lot. Didn’t quite happen. More on that later.
My second goal was to capture a sunset, for the first time, at Crater Lake. Today’s photo is as close as I got. Those clouds on the right covered the lake and turned into thick fog as well just minutes after I took this photo. I had high hopes too, as Crater Lake looked like this less than an hour before sundown.
Lots of festivities on campus tomorrow for Arbor Day. Check ’em out here.
The blossoms are all gone now, but last week (during a shower) they looked like they do in today’s photo.
Ten years ago this tree looked like this.
Now the little girl that was under that tree in 2005 drives the blossom-covered car pictured under this same tree.
Friday was the last day of this year to catch this scene. The leaves were falling fast and furiously (as you can see if you look really closely at today’s photo; those are leaves in the air, not birds), and the weekend was a windy one.
I went for a walk this past Sunday morning when we were staying at the Inn at Diamond Woods, a place on a golf course between Eugene and Corvallis. The grass was mostly flooded from the rain the day before so there weren’t many golfers.
The sun had barely peeked through the clouds when I took today’s photo. Rain began again soon thereafter which was fine by us since we were going to be indoors all the rest of the day at the CEVA Presidents’ Day Volleyball Tournament.
Santa Barbara has the largest fig tree in the USA, but this isn’t it. The one pictured here is still a massive presence on the cemetery grounds of the Santa Barbara Mission.
