Last Day of Winter

Horses in the Snow

Personally, I’m ready to have winter behind and springtime coming. And summer. So, here is a reminder of winter … here in Port Townsend, it was a pretty mild one with a couple of snowfalls, but nothing that created much of a long term problem.

Larry Scott Trail Views

Larry Scott Trail View 1

The Larry Scott Trail runs from the marina in Port Townsend down into the country south of town. Part of the way, it follows an old railway bed. Unfortunately, it dead ends still … but the long range plan is to connect it up to the Discovery Trail and then link it over to the Pacific beaches. That would make a very long, beautiful bike ride. I hope the plan is successful …

Here the Larry Scott Trail (on the right) parallels a driveway.

Abandoned Homestead

Abandoned Homestead

I was driving from Susanville, CA to Klamath Falls, OR and saw this abandoned homestead off the roadway. I’m not sure if the tree is still alive, since it was early in the spring and a fairly high elevation. It is still an active cattle ranch. Hopefully, the family that homesteaded was able to continue ownership.

Sierras and Horses

Sierras and Horses

Heading back to the motel after freezing up at the Bristlecones (it was 39 degrees F with a 20mph wind blowing), we returned down the access road and down to Hwy 395 just outside of the town of Big Pine. I saw some great clouds over the Sierras … and a nice pasture scene in the foreground, so pulled off the side of the road and grabbed the camera.

Mead Road Shed II

Mead Road Shed II

This is a slightly different view of the shed on Mead Road on Marrowstone Island that I posted several days ago. This one was with a digital camera.

It didn’t involve nearly the work to remove all the dust spots that the scan of the negative required.

  • Camera: Fujifilm X100V
  • ISO 160 1/900 sec f/5.6
