One Final Sun-Kissed Morning ~ Horton Creek Campground near Bishop, CA

Time to head on down the road once again but still time left to revel in one final sun-kissed morning, as I make a turn to admire the mountain ranges all around me.  The mountains, alpine lakes and meadows have been breathtaking, but I have failed to mention how beautiful the farmland is around this part of California.  For miles, golden meadow grasses sway in the breeze and cattle and horses grace the fields.  I could not resist one final drive down a country road outside the campground in the quiet early morning hours to admire this stunning landscape.  And here is just a glimpse of the beauty that has surrounded us this past week:

BTW, if you happen through Bishop, it is quite the little town.  Stop by the Galen & Barbara Rowell Mountain Light Gallery for some of the most fabulous nature photography I have ever seen.  And if you are hungry, Thai Thai, a nondescript Thai food restaurant at the airport or the Holy Smokes Texas Barbecue are both outstanding.

The Trail Less Traveled ~ Sky Trail to Sculptured Beach ~ Point Reyes, CA

Oft times it is the trail less traveled that rewards us with the most treasures. Expansive vistas, fern-covered forest floors full of rich, earthy smells, colorful berries and wildflowers, busy bees at work, trilling of songbirds, and the powerful surging of ocean tides on sculptured rocks await those who dare to venture these paths.

These are just a few of the sights, sounds, and smells we experienced on the Sky Trail > Woodward Valley Trail > Coast Trail down to Sculptured Beach, a moderate 10-mile round trip of pure delight!
