Tourist Season.

High on the current list of coastal visitors are folks in search of the elusive Abalone. Here an early group of hunters heading for Glass Beach.
A fare amount of early morning walkers have crossed the the Pudding Creek Trestle as evident in the morning dew.

Residual foot prints on the Pudding Creek Beach dunes.

Yet early morning has its beauty and solitude for those who seek it.

A yearling White Crown Sparrow awake in his new world.

A splendid "Butterfly Garden".
I have posted a slide show of our Skunk Train Trek from Willits to Fort Bragg.
Click this link and then "Backpacking the Skunk" and then "Full Screen" in the upper right hand corner. There is a slide show "speed control" in the upper left.
Hope it works for you!


  1. Roger e-mailed me to let me know that is a juvenile "White" Crown Sparrow, not a Gold Crown Sparrow.

    I made the correction to the post.

    Thanks Roger

  2. Love the footprints in the sand. Look at all that sun-LIGHT so early in the morning.
