Closer to noon now. Still foggy. Boo.
From Calero County Park Loop Hike (02.02.13)
On a clear day this would be a nice view.
I love the gnarly oaks in these parks.
On the ridge.
I'm hoping to catch a few early wildflowers. The green is looking good!
Climbing up to a ridge.
It's close to 10 am and I'm wondering if the fog will ever burn off today.
I watch the coots on the pond for a few minutes.
I walk into the fog, appreciating that the damp and cool air is at least helping with my head congestion.
I thought it was supposed to be sunny today but the fog is thick. Nevertheless, I'm carrying sunscreen along with the expectation that it will blow off like normal by 10 am.
Heading down from Knobcone Point and I can see across the canyon to the non-stop fog rolling over the top of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
From Uvas Canyon Waterfalls (12.16.2012)
Fog rolling through the canyons.
I decide to head to Triple Falls first, one that is up a different canyon/creek than the waterfall loop.
From Lava Beds (04.22-24.2011)
Mist from the falls was drenching the trail
Sunday morning it was raining and even snowed for a bit. We stopped at one of the developed caves on our way out of the park. Lens was foggy so didn't take any more shots.
From Ventana Wilderness Pine Valley Backpack (04.09-10.2010)
On the return hike (no pics, due to the rain) we hiked out in a storm. The winds were gusting up this hillside in 60+mph blasts. No wonder there aren't any trees.
Peeking down a ridge into the rocky valley far below.
Occasionally the fog would clear enough for us to get peeks into amazing terrain.
Hiking through the hillsides of lupine.
Into the fog along Pine Ridge
Heading up the trail through the fog. This area burned in the Big Basin Complex fire last year.
