American River redux
This is one of my favorite places to go walking–I can’t help but take a lot of pictures. It’s especially neat since the water is so high right now. The last pictures I posted (last week) were from the south bank of the river, which is an easy walk from my house. The other day, I went the north bank of the river–I have to drive there, but it’s a longer walk and there’s more wide-open space, so it’s worth it.
As always, click on any of the following pics to enlarge them.
I took this last fall when I walked down with Kat and Olav to watch the sun set. Notice the golden tree and the exposed bridge pilings.
For contrast, here's the one I took the other day. The now bare tree is barely in the water, and so are both of the bridge pilings that were exposed in the other picture.
Here's a leaf picture from last fall.
Here's the same spot, several months later.
Ok, enough with the contrasts. Onto other things.
Since my mom liked the picture of the dried star anise from a couple of weeks ago, here's some dried star thistle. (Although I actually took this before she told me she liked the anise...)
Signs of spring.
