Random Photos

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

A random taste of photos:
The pear-shaped fruit of the California Buckeye. Red rock towers in Sedona. Little purple flowers growing in beach sand.  It resembles sand verbena, but I\'m not sure.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!)
Ground squirrel, standing on a post. A man stands on the beach, gazing toward Morro Rock. A shed cicada skin among orange Marigold flowers.
\ A pair of snails meet on a wood post. Yellow wildflowers lead to a pond in Pacheco State Park, California.
Chihuahua skull on a black background. Fish at Monterey Bay Aquarium. Wailua Falls.
Purple wildflowers brighten a fallen log at Pacheco State Park in California. Tufa towers in Mono Lake. 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.
Green hummingbird hovering at a backyard feeder. Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico. Many caprocks are visible here. The shoreline of a murky green marsh.
Red rock mountains in Sedona. Grand Canyon, Arizona The impressive Morro Rock in Morro Bay, California.
Tufa tower in Mono Lake. 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.
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. Yellow wildflowers in front of tufa towers at Mono Lake. Tiny pink blooms on a flower stalk from a Heuchera plant, AKA Coral Bells.
Two people cast shadows onto shallow water at the Alviso salt marshes. A deep red and pink geranium flower over a green leafy background. A depth marker in a salt marsh shows stagnant green water to be lower than usual.
