Hello. I hope this brief post finds you all happy and well. Things have been a bit intense lately, at work and school and especially in my head. There is a team presentation due in class today and another test on Thursday. After that, maybe I can breathe a little bit for a couple of days and think about something else. In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos with you. These were taken in the canyon just North of our home on Sunday. It had been raining and the canyon was beautiful, all the leaves are turning too. Funny, Tom and I wouldn’t have gone on that hike, but I needed some photos of poison oak for the class presentation and it forced us out there. We were both so happy and vowed to go again this coming Sunday. Enjoy:

It stopped raining just long enough for our hike, and the blue sky was beautiful.

...blue sky through a Sycamore tree


We found some juicy looking mushrooms growing on an oak tree.

...fungus on oak


I really really LOVE Sycamore trees.

...California Sycamore


This one is surround by a carpet of Poison Oak, which is also growing up the trunk – beautiful and very itchy.

...it really needs a tire swing.


Sometimes, when I’m in this canyon, I forget that it’s right next to the highway.

...a place to rest on the way home.
