A random taste of photos:
Tufa towers at Mono Lake. A mountain range near Mammoth Lakes, California. Tufa towers in Mono Lake.
Tufa towers at Mono Lake. Macro of a sunlit spider web (sans spider). A white mushroom on a fallen tree near Mammoth Lakes.
Closeup of green, yellow and red leaves of a plant. Macro of a natural salt marsh. Tufa towers at Mono Lake.
A snail checks out the purple wisteria flowers. Colorful rough-textured rock. An old decrepit abandoned building in the toxic dead tree zone near Mammoth Mountain. (It was probably an emergency snow cabin or something.) Natural CO2 outgassing from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s. The gasses become concentrated to deadly levels in enclosed structures such as cabins.
Red and gray rock cliffs and towers in Sedona. Wildflowers dot a field under a bright sky in Pacheco State Park, California. Delicate white Cyclamen flowers on a pale background.
A green anole lizard on a green and yellow plant. Lovely marsh muck collects near the bank. Egrets are barely visible in the distance. Two ground squirrels on a post, one sitting and one climbing.
Kapalua Beach on Maui. Perrine Bridge over the Snake River Canyon in Twin Falls, Idaho. Yellow sunflower.
This is either a Sharp-shinned Hawk or a Cooper\'s Hawk, eating a smaller bird. I believe it is a juvenile (fledged some weeks ago). This hawk family lived in a eucalyptus tree on a golf course. A red wildflower by a stream near Mammoth Lakes. It resembles Indian Paintbrush, but I\'m not sure what it is. A big black carpenter bee diving into the morning glory.
Waves near the rocky coast before a foggy blurred horizon. An American flag flies on the beach near Morro Rock while children and adults play in the water nearby. A succulent plant -- Crassula perforata variegata, AKA Necklace Vine or String of Buttons.  Bright green leaves with dark red edges.
Painted Desert within the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona. Creamy colors blend with orange, red, yellow, mauve, green and blue in this textured landscape.
