After visiting Lake Tahoe on Day 7, the only “must-see” left on our list was the Oregon Caves, which several friends had highly recommended before we left Portland. Looking at the map on the morning of Day 8, we figured that the best way to get from Greenville to Cave Junction was straight out to [...]
Here are a handful of additional photos from my recent trip to California that didn’t fit in with my earlier posts. Many are from a quick visit we paid to Ferndale, a logging/dairy boom-town of the late 1800s about 20 miles south of Eureka. The town’s main street boasts numerous well-preserved buildings from the Victorian [...]
After our walk through Fern Canyon Friday afternoon, Isaac and I took a quick stroll on Gold Bluffs Beach, also part of Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. The beach there reminds me a lot of the Oregon coast. We also took time to smell the lupines.
This past weekend, work took me to Eureka, Calif. We arrived around lunchtime Friday, and had the afternoon off. With the weather as good as could be expected for the rest of the weekend, fellow photographer Isaac Koval suggested we visit Fern Canyon in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, about 50 miles north of town.

Continuing the tales from last week’s trip to Eureka, Calif., (and this should be the last post in the series) … I had another break in my schedule Friday afternoon, so I drove out to the Samoa Dunes Recreation Area, on the narrow spit of land that separates Humboldt Bay from the Pacific Ocean. Among [...]
Because there are only so many flights to Eureka, last week I arrived nearly a day in advance of my first appointment. So, to kill a few hours, I took a drive along the Avenue of the Giants, a scenic byway along Highway 101 that runs through Humboldt Redwoods State Park about 30 miles south [...]
Or is that sites and scenes? Here are some of my personal pictures from last week’s trip to Eureka, California. They were taken on two different days; the weather was much nicer on Thursday than Friday. Most are from the “Old Town” area (1st to 5th Streets, between about B Street and M) but some [...]
Did a bit of street photography this afternoon: walked around downtown Eureka with my camera, literally shooting from the hip. I haven’t really looked at the take yet, but this one stood out.
Here’s a picture from today’s adventures in Eureka, Calif., and another from my drive along the Avenue of the Giants. The only photo editing software I have access to right now is Paint, so you’ll have to put up with the files as they come out of the cameraâ€”no cropping, toning, no nothing.
Yesterday, I was taking pictures in Oregon City. Today, it’s the other OC–Orange County, California. I’m here at the Crowne Plaza hotel (left) in Irvine for Sports Shooter Academy IV. It will be my home for the next few days, although I will be traveling around the area, from Long Beach to La Habra. The [...]
