My last photo shoot of 2016 was at one of my favorite places, Rough and Ready Creek near Cave Junction, Oregon. Pam Cone and I took a day trip up there a couple of days ago. I’d been talking about it for years. The temperature was a couple degrees above freezing. We were prepared and didn’t feel it. The day before, where I’m standing was under water. Great timing! There is high fog in this picture and the mountains in the background are obscured.
Happy New Year!
Every now and then, one comes across a natural color that seems unnatural. I grew up with the impression that icebergs were white. Not so, these, or any of the ones I saw in Argentina. I’ve heard the more pressure the ice is under the deeper the blue.
This time of year at Dry Lagoon is great. It’s WET. It’s also a risky place to visit. Going north along the lagoon or beach, it’s fine. But going south, there are some gorgeous rock formations. If you’re not careful and watching the tides, you’ll either be stranded or have a very long hike via Big Lagoon, 101, then the road back in to Dry Lagoon. This is one of my favorite places.

I don’t think of maples being in redwood forests. But they are, in Prairie Creek Redwood State Park in northern Humboldt County, CA. I was so taken with these maples that I walked right by a notable redwood, the Corkscrew Tree.
