Sorry, no lost city of gold here; just El Dorado Park, in the LBC!
I was just thinking, I should try to capture more images of our dog, Desmond, while he is still fairly young.
Unfortunately, he is faster than I and somehow, every time I pull out a camera he just ‘knows’ and shies away.
These two are gold in my book.
In an effort to take in more of the outdoors, we decided to explore the Santiago Creek-Wilderness Loop Trails in Santiago Oaks Regional Park just outside of Villa Park, CA. These are an amazing set of trails and like many descriptions, they take you through a variety of scenery.
The first trail we followed let us up a steep hill just off of the parking lot. Proper footwear for the win.
After meandering through several trails (a hike can go on indefinitely if you really want it to) we made our way down to a more wooded area. We followed the Santiago Creek Trail and caught wonderful views of the creek, the old Submerged Dam and the native plant life.
“Low visibility at 5000 feet. Drive carefully.” a friend’s text warned as we followed a distance behind, en route to Big Bear. Low visibility was correct. We had literally driven into a cloud. These are my favorite images, captured while driving up the CA18 & CA38.
Recently, I have had some terrible luck with my back-up hard drives. Just when I feel like my files are safe and secure, the drive has a mega freak-out and either crashes or threatens to die on me (enter backup emergency mode). Because of this, I have been going through all my old photos to make sure they are all still intact. Everything so far is good to go and, as I hoped, there some gems in there!
These are my favorite photographs from my first visit to Portland, OR in 2007.
