our travels and photography...
Sort of a trail dog anyway. Until a bird flutters or a pika chirps or a gopher pops its head up. Then she's off trail.

Sometimes a simple sunrise silhouette is enough to capture the moment. Looking forward to a fantastic weekend with a new camera. Get out there and enjoy!
Because the pigeons on the neighbor's roof are a real threat.
Drink at Hand: Trader Joe's Sleepy Time tea (its late, but its also Thursday!)
Thirsty Thursday here again! Time to pour something yummy and make those weekend plans. This week is more of a shout out to someone else's weekend plans--my parents! The day before the three of us departed for RAGBRAI back in July, they did the Iowa Games time trial. Because clearly the 450 miles ahead of them that week were not enough. They are actually regular TTers and a few weeks after this event, they each won a state championship!
That's a scary looking tree....I wonder what's over there....I think I should go check it out.

This post is for my Mom. During my parents' last day visiting us, Mom wanted to get pictures of nine different oak trees (she has a frame for nine pics). So, there we were driving around on the 101 between Monterey and Gilroy trying to find lone oak trees. We definitely found enough of them but I ended up only shooting a few of them. I'm pretty sure she able to get a least nine and I can't wait to see hers. Here's a few of mine. Believe it or not, it was a bright sunny day!
I'll take care of them myself (cue evil laugh).
Drink at Hand: 2007 Scheid Reserve Chardonnay (top 5 favorites!)
Hey hey hey...Thirsty Thursday here again. Time to pour something yummy and make those weekend plans. This evening we'll recount a day spent in the wilderness form our backpacking trip to the Trinity Alps from way back at the beginning of the summer. Can't believe its fall already!
A typical day in the backcountry starts with a sunrise shoot.
Yep, that big bump toward the right is Mt Shasta.
Then we eat prepare to breakfast. Really hard work.
Massey maintains a constant guard over the camp perimeter.
Breakfast actually gets made...and we try to keep warm until the sun kicks in.
Then if the trip planner (which is me 99% of the time) has selected a good spot, we have plenty of hiking and exploring to fill up the day.
And then we relax a bit and wait for the sun to set.
Days in the backcountry are pretty fantastic. Wish we could get more days out there, but the rarity fuels the stoke to go bigger the next time.
Get out there and have your own wilderness-filled weekend!
San Francisco had the honor of this cute little pup on its sidewalks this weekend!
Drink in Hand: Ice Water
Just a little instagram from down the coast.
Our sweet little girl turned 5 yesterday! The cutest little puppy has turned into an awesome part of our lives. She's the best.
May Massey have many more fields to run in.
Drink at Hand: Trader Joe's Pomegranate Limeade
Thirsty Thursday here again, time to pour something yummy and make those weekend plans! Its been a busy week, so I thought this photo is fitting. Special thanks to our gearhead backpacking buddy who had to buy the hammock and then carry it into the backcountry. It was comfy! I think Terry fell asleep in it shortly after this photo was snapped.
Yes, she is a diva.
