Random Photos

Here are a bunch of random photos. Feel free to reload the page to see some more!

A random taste of photos:
Painted Desert within the Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona. Succulent plants growing in the beach sand in Morro Bay, California. Tufa towers at Mono Lake.
Colorful landscape surrounds a stagnant green river near the Environmental Education Center in Alviso, California. A red rock stands out among gray ones in a creek in Sedona. Perrine Bridge over the Snake River Canyon in Twin Falls, Idaho.
This building reminded me of an old decrepit church. (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. Fish at Monterey Bay Aquarium. A lazy gray-and-white cat naps blissfully.
Petrified wood in this desolate landscape has been fossilized and turned to stone. A pond reflects fluffy white clouds on a mountain-flanked plain in Idaho. A green and red succulent plant that resembles an artichoke.
Rocky beach in Morro Bay. Tufa towers at Mono Lake. A lone seagull stands near the water\'s edge.
Orange sunset at the beach in Morro Bay. Macro of a natural pink salt marsh. Near Nakalele Blowhole.
Moss-covered stones in a grassy field in Pacheco State Park, California. Broken rocks colored with lichen near a lake. Wildflowers brighten a grove of trees in Pacheco State Park, California.
Closeup of green and purple wisteria flower buds against a blurred green background. Petrified wood in this desolate landscape has been fossilized and turned to stone. Dried and cracked mud.
Soaptree yucca plant at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico. Raven in profile, closeup (somewhat). Macro of a purple flower with yellow pollen and green stems.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!)
Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico. A vacant paper wasp nest held in the palm of my hand. The nest is constructed of open hexagonal cells in which the young develop. Bright yellow-green leaves against a clear blue sky.
