Los Rios Historic District, SJC

(25 photos) Exiting the train this past Sunday from my spontaneous ride to San Juan Capistrano, I was surprised to find a tiny row of shops and restaurants running directly along the train tracks. Turns out the area holds many of the town’s original buildings from the days before California was part of the United […]

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve

(8 photos) The pictures in this gallery were taken at the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve , in Huntington Beach, during a recent drive up Pacific Coast Highway from Newport Beach to Seal Beach, where I stopped for dinner. The noise level was intense from all the birds, circling off in the distance. It was so cool […]

Afternoon on the Mountain, Oak Glen

I realized yesterday while starting a few projects in my craft room that I hadn’t been to Oak Glen for some time, so I put aside the projects and hopped in my little truck. The 1 and a 1/4 hour drive was pleasant. I went straight away to a favorite spot, Snow Line, for coffee […]

Scaling Red Rock

(8 photos) Rock climbing Red Rock is very popular. I found it fascinating to watch, thanks to my zoom lens, as my friends gave me a tour of the area recently. It’s a sport requiring skill, endurance, patience, determination, and I would imagine finger strength (?!). ~SueBee

Ash Meadows

(16 photos) During my recent visit to Nevada, my friends toured us through Death Valley, on to the ghost town of Rhyolite, the town of Beatty, and then to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge was absolutely fascinating. Crystal clear, turquoise water in the middle of the desert, with wee, tiny fish that flourish […]

This large metal sculpture was a very bizarre scene to stumble across in Death Valley’s ghost town of Rhyolite. Therefore, a good choice for my occasional Daily Foto Fix category. ~SueBee

Spectacular Red Rock Canyon

During my visit to Pahrump, Nevada, last week, my friends toured me through the Red Rock Canyon area. To say it’s spectacularly beautiful is an understatement. I hope to return one day for some hiking as I’m sure the views from the top must be even more incredible. ~SueBee

Weekly Photo Challenge, Evanescent 2

I’m submitting a second entry for this week’s Photo Challenge, Evanescent, with this photo I took at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada last week. Notice the climber making an attempt up the side of the rock. Well, not a second after taking the picture, the climber slipped off the rock and was […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

This week, the WordPress Photo Challenge asks us for a photo interpreting Evanescent (an adjective defined as soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing). I chose a photo I took last week at Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge near Death Valley of a very speedy jackrabbit. He was gone in […]

Opera in Death Valley

(14 photos) My friends, Aranka and her husband George, whom I visited in Pahrump, Nevada, earlier this week took me on a fabulous tour of the local area. On Tuesday, our destination was Death Valley. Driving through some pretty unforgiving land, there suddenly stood the Amargosa Opera House! I linked to their website for those […]

Road Trip

After returning home from Kat’s wedding in Julian (a couple hours south from home), I collapsed into bed, and then got up to hit the road again. My destination would be a town called Pahrump in the Nevada desert, about an hour northwest of Las Vegas, new home of a long-time friend. I headed out […]

It was everything the newlyweds dreamed of, and planned for the past 14 months. The pictures in this gallery were […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Danger

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge asks us to submit a picture of danger! I chose this picture I took on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation in Palm Springs. While the desert is generally a very arid place, rain in nearby, higher elevations (the mountains directly above where I took the picture) can cause flash flooding that’s extremely […]
