We’re back from a week-long visit to the Eastern Sierra where we did some hiking and day trips based out of Mammoth Lakes. On the evening of our arrival we had an early dinner and then took a walk with Toni at Horseshoe Lake. The sun was setting and we could easily wait for the stars to come out. At Lake Mamie, it was especially nice to see the stars and Milky Way reflect in the calm water.

Just something I saw at the side of the road during our April 2016 roadtrip…
Moonlight Beach is a beach “pocket” in the coastal cliffs of Encinitas. It’s very busy in summer of course, and it has plenty of features for beach-goers to have a good time! We were there for sunset – subtropical moisture was passing through San Diego and Southern California, bringing some clouds which partially lit up for sunset.
Just three photos from along the road. Lake Nacimiento Road and Interlake Road to be precise – Alex wanted to visit Mission San Antonio De Padua, which is nestled somewhere in the hills north of Paso Robles and I made these photos along the way.
It was very windy while we were in Paso Robles. Before we continued west on Highway 46 we took Vineyard Road to take in some more of the scenery. The wind moved the still mostly green wheat in this field around a lot and I tried to capture some of the elegance and chaos in it.
In April, we were on a road trip to California’s “Central Coast” region. On the first day, we drove from San Diego to Santa Barbara and ultimately to Solvang, the Danish-themed little town. I didn’t make any photos there (other than with my cellphone, shared on Instagram) but the following day we drove more inland, returning to Carrizo Plain National Monument.
A photo from our visit to Germany in 2014. In late Spring and early Summer, the pastures are full with wildflowers and the cows grazing there must be the happiest cows I’ve ever seen. 🙂
