dairy cow of point reyes

Blue sky, green grasslands, and a few Moo-oo

There exists a vast coastal grassland, dotted with milk cows under the clear blue sky. Nineteenth century redwood white barns stand among the wind swept cypress. And don’t forget that the ocean is just a hill away. I swear I have pictured

When ocean reveals the Secret Beach

Ever since we visited the Alamere Falls of Point Reyes a year ago, this place have kept its mystery to me. It is the tranquility and separation that drew me over again on this 13-mile excursion. This time the destinations are Sculptured beach and

Pfeiffer beach

Big Sur, not just about ocean this time

A monarch butterfly spotting trip became what was more like a central coast scavenger hunt. It wasn’t like I didn’t do the homework. I marked and picked the “best” of all the spots to watch them, set our tent nearby the big eucalyptus trees where they are supposed to

Fall in the backyard

[after the rain of fall] When it’s the time of fall, I hear lots of discussions as where to hunt for that luscious fall color. I had been on one of those hunts and my eyes were filled with hues

Pulgas Ridge Open Space Preserve

I have always amazed by these California oak woodland most often seen on the bay area hiking trails. Unlike Redwood trees which strives to be high up into the sky, the oaks simply refuse growing straight and tall. They “dance” and then freeze their poses along the way. That’s the way I’d

General Sherman Giant Sequoia

Into the Giant Sequoias

Towering, majestic, and inarguably picturesque, I find myself gazing skyward, awestruck by the grandeur of beautiful Giant Sequoia Trees. I could not stare at the top branches without my jaw dropping to the floor and the huge trunk of the sequoias

Wildlife sightings in Yellowstone can create traffic jam, with the biggest headaches from bears. Yellowstone is like Mecca for wildlife photographers and spotting telescopes, quality digital SLR cameras are everywhere and 300mm $1700 lenses are a must. Hell $10,000 to
