Just a little bit anxious


Throwing it back to my first, and only, rodeo experience.

View from Bumpass Hell Trail

One of the views I mentioned last week was this one.

The three peaks in this photo are (from left to right): Brokeoff Mountain, Mt. Diller, and Pilot Pinnacle.

For some, unknown reason I have spent more than 40 years of my life within 5 hours of Lassen Volcanic National Park (most of the last 17 years less than 3 hours away) and yet I had never been there (before last week). What was I thinking?

I’ve been to Yosemite many times, but in some ways Lassen is better. For starters, the crowds are far smaller.

Manzanita Lake blew me away. I couldn’t get enough of it. The views from the lake change drastically as you walk around it, and they also are quite different as the day progresses. It didn’t hurt that we had thunderstorms for brief moments each day. Pre- and post-storm clouds over the lake were awesome.

More photos of Lassen and Manzanita Lake coming soon…

Skimboarding in San Francisco


Hedge Creek Falls

Hedge Creek Falls

Today is the first day of the last five days that I’m not traveling to or from the San Francisco Bay Area. Today’s photo comes from Dunsmuir, California on day three. The short walk to this waterfall, just off of I-5, is a nice place for a break from driving.
