I haven’t been out hiking or camping much lately. I have been pretty busy with school and a new part time job. Luckily, I was able to get out last weekend with the Gaston brother’s and we camped out on one of the coldest nights here in California (not that cold compared to most of the country)of the year. I think the temperature was down to around 20-26 degrees Fahrenheit. The hike was great, the camping, even better. We all stayed relatively warm in our tents as we slept on a bed of pine leaves. It was a much needed short excursion, which brought back a few good shots.
Yesterday, I went out hiking for the first time in two and a half weeks. Far too long, but well worth the wait. On the way home, I came across an open field where a big group of deer were hanging out. The females were running around teasing the males, and the males were sparring. It was great fun to watch, and a great way to get me back into the hiking mood!
Two weeks ago Kelly and I went to Safari West in Santa Rosa, CA. It was a belated birthday gift for me from both her and her parents. We spent the first night in Calistoga, CA at a natural hot springs resort. It was very nice to wake up early and jump in a 100 degree pool. Safari West was awesome! We spent the day looking at all the animals on our jeep ride through the park. They had many different types of antelope, monkeys, and an extensive variety of birds. The night was spent in their canvas tent cabins with the sounds of cranes and other birds in the backdrop. I’m not a very big fan of zoo shots, but I think I got a few good ones in. If you are in the Santa Rosa area, I suggest you stop by for a nice jeep tour, and spend the night if you have some time.
