Random Photos

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

A random taste of photos:
A field of yellow coneflowers (I think) in a forest. Nene, or Hawaiian goose. The official state bird. This one was very friendly and came close, showing off and looking for a handout. A bright red and yellow sunflower.
Petrified wood appears as colorful stone. Petrified wood appears as colorful stone.
Closeup of red and yellow leaves or petals of a tropical plant. The still water of a salt marsh reflects white and gray clouds in a blue sky. Flowers, leaves and moss growing on a brick wall.
Orange sunset at the beach in Morro Bay. A live cicada on my house. Natural CO2 emissions from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s.
A garden snail examines the rings on a wood post. Rainbow at the base of Shoshone Falls (sometimes called the Crystal Crag and broken rocks face off at TJ Lake or Lake Barrett (not sure which).
A snail climbs a purple wisteria plant. Marsh water curves through a colorful landscape. Yellow wildflowers lead to a pond in Pacheco State Park, California.
Driftwood structure at the mouth of the Wailua River, where it meets the Pacific Ocean. A sky full of clouds threatens to rain on hills and a green plain. White Sands National Monument, New Mexico
Tufa tower in Mono Lake. Lovely marsh muck. Purple and yellow pansies.
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. Orange sunset at the beach in Morro Bay. Closeup of a blue dragonfly on a pinecone.
Convict Lake near Mammoth Lakes, California. Seabirds at Morro Bay, California.  (If anyone knows the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!) A zig-zaggy boardwalk leads to the Environmental Education Center in Alviso, California.
