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.
On Saturday August 3rd, I left for Alturas, California to visit a friend for ten days. Alturas is tucked into the top right corner of California. This small 2.5 square mile town is 45 minutes from both the Oregon and Nevada borders. It’s the kind of town where everybody knows everybody, and wilderness is around every corner. Thanks to Matt and Amber for all the fun and their hospitality.
Yesterday I went out to Sunol Regional Wilderness, in Sunol, CA. This place is beautiful and filled with breathtaking landscapes, as well as all sorts of critters. I saw baby turkey, a bobcat, and all sorts of colorful birds. Great place to hike for a day!
I have been taking photos and shooting video around Wildlife Preserves in the Bay Area for the past six months in search of coyotes and other wildlife. Arastradero is closest to home, so Whenever I have a little bit of free time during the day I like to run over there. This little video is just a tiny fraction of the footage I have gathered over the months. I’m not quite ready to throw it all together yet, so I made this short edit to itch my video editing bug. These clips were accumulated over two separate days at the preserve.
