Misty Mountains

A view looking back toward the Pacific from the trails around Point Mugu in California. I started the day in a cold cloudy mist and went for a hike here. By the time I got to the top of the trail I was baking in summer like heat. This was on my way back to the parking just off the Pacific Coast Highway #1 (PCH) where my rental car was.

Sunset Reflections on Burnt Island

The sun sets behind an island on Algonquin Park’s Burnt Island Lake. Viewed from my campsite on Saturday night as the wind dropped and the water went glassy calm. Of course, this also meant a voracious attack from the blackflies but I managed to get a few photos in before retreating to the shelter of our campfire smoke.

End of Day – Burnt Island Lake I

An image of my pack canoe at our campsite around sunset on Saturday night. We managed to get the coveted island site near the middle of the lake this time. This is looking southwest toward the Baby Joe Lake portage.

A Walk On Top of the World

This photograph is from the trail at Mugu Peak near Oxnard, California. I took the day to go for a hike here starting at the Pacific Coast Highway and right up to Mugu Peak. This was the trail after the peak and as I descended down into La Jolla Valley.

Ventura Pier after the Storm

While visiting the Ventura Pier, a small thunderstorm wandered by. Here’s a view looking east toward the pier shortly after. This was a "long exposure" using the Sony "Smooth Reflection" camera app that combines 48 photos.

Winter’s Last Days on The Oak Ridges Trail

Today I started hiking the Oak Ridges Trail from the west terminus. An early Spring snowstorm has dusted the area with snow leading to this scene. We had an interesting day hiking in the snow while paring down to t-shirts in the warm weather.

Big McCoy Evening Campfire II

Another view of our group around the campfire on Big McCoy Island. This one facing the other direction and thus we have the Milky Way making an appearance.

Big McCoy Evening Campfire I

A view of our campfire on Big McCoy Island at night. As tinder is scarce on the actual island, we packed our firewood in on the back of our kayaks from a local supplier near Dillon Marina.

Artificial Sunset

Looking back toward Parry Sound from Big McCoy Island on Georgian Bay. The "sunset" is actually the city lights from Parry Sound itself.
