our travels and photography...
After a couple of weeks of what seemed to be injuries, we figured out that it was just long toenails....so, clippy, clippy....and she's back!

Nothing beats waiting for the Eastern Sierras to glow in the fall...even if it's a typical Welliver sky (a.k.a., no drama)!
No birthday trip for the sister this year, but I'll go see her later this week. Hopefully she still gets to explore with her camera because it makes her happy!
On a hot day (it was about 95°F) in Chico, CA last year, Massey was surveying the area. It was so hot she didn't make it far....really to the nearest tree behind us. For those of you freezing in the midwest, I'm sure you can sympathize!

...that perfect tree. This may not be it...but I'll keep searching. I've got a few nice tree shots under my belt, but definitely not enough. There may also be a Massey sighting in this one as well!
Tall grass, brambles, nice light. She's a happy dog.

Just a few shots from Carmel State Beach from last April. It was such a beautiful day and the color of the water was just fantastic. Enjoy the weekend!
Nothing like patrolling Fort Ord at sunset!

Today's sunrise (the first photograph) reminded me that the best camera you have is the one you have on you. So, tonight, I thought I'd share some of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that I've captured with an iPhone over the last few years. The colors may be oversaturated on some but they still captured the moment when the sky and land is covered in color. Simply stunning.
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.

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!
