Meet Mt. Diablo

11 Mar

Last weekend, the Boy and I drove to Mt. Diablo State Park for some photography and rambling. Armed with cameras, hats and enough water to drench Nevada, here’s what I did with my afternoon:

Meet Bushy. The squirrel with an attitude. “I charge, you know,” he said, before deigning to pose.

I love roots. Especially mine. :mrgreen: These aren’t too shabby though.

Clearly, I was barking up the right tree.

This one made me think of ‘The Woman in Black’. And that creeped me out.

So I moved on to brighter subjects. Like this web in the sun.

Before branching out into Creepsville again.

Hello, smiled the solitary ornithologist. And disappeared into the trees.

So I busied myself with more available men. One, to be precise.

And got distracted by the most breathtaking visual of the day.

~The End~

    Picture perfection
    Pretty perception
    Chipmunk and men
    Daunting twiggy den
    The Bark was exception!
