Northern Coastal Redwoods

I took a few days exploring the redwoods along the northern California coast this August. What a magical place! Walking among the giant trees, it was easy to be transported to fantastical lands of imagined places long ago.

The Tall Trees Grove in Redwood National Park is home to the tallest trees in the world. Walking among these giants is a magical and wonderful experience!
Driving along the Avenue of the Redwoods, I found this dirt road. I pulled off and walked a few hundred feet from my car for this shot.

I saw this stranger with her camera. I asked her to stay right there. She asked me to do the same for her photo.
This beach is near Dry Lagoon. We went here after dinner to experience the sunset on the coast. I found one lone strand of cloud to add interest to my photo.

Tuolumne Meadows 2019

This year I took some friends to camp in the high country of Yosemite National Park for 4 days. There were 7 in our group. For a few people camping was a new experience. I enjoyed sharing some of my favorite hikes and seeing their excitement. One woman commented, “This is better than shopping!” We had a great trip!

I took an additional day and night on my own to revisit a favorite location and focus on photography. Here are some of those photos.

Tenaya Lake and Half Dome are off in the distance below.
Parker Pass Creek runs along Tioga Road. The mosquitoes here were really bad. For me to say that, they had to be REALLY bad!
Peaceful – I loved roaming around before, during, and after sunset looking for compositions and being here!
