Sunset at Kalaloch

Sunset at Kalaloch

Kalaloch is one of the beach sections of Olympic National Park. It’s a great place for catching sunsets (but a long ways from anywhere else). These shore pines are in front of the row of beach cottages that are available for rent. The (small, cozy with a great view) restaurant has good food, but expect the higher prices that come with a National Park resort in a remote location.

Putting this blog together was the first time that I had these two images positioned like this. They are two separate image files, not just one cropped in two. But they were both taken at the same time from the same location.

Having them together creates more than the sum of the two separated.

Tree Shadows

Single Track Road
Tree Lines

The road is in the hills southwest of Chelan, Washington. Once you’re on it, it’s a little hard to find a place to turn around. So, I just kept going. I ended up in an area that had been involved in a fire in the last year or so… and the shadows crossing the road were dramatic.

Donner Pass Rock Work

Rock wall for railroad

Upland Rock

Donner Pass is on Interstate 80 between Reno and Sacramento. The impressive rockwork is the old railroad grade, built by Chinese workers with construction finalized in 1868. From the look of the rock in the surroundings, they collected a lot of the rock they used from the wall locally.

Nevada Desert

Nevada Desert Road

This area is just a few miles from Reno … if you drive in the right direction. Driving in the ‘wrong’ direction will put you through miles of sprawl.

Resident of the Nevada Desert

This is a Regal Horned Lizard that I was lucky enough to spot along the roadway when it moved. Otherwise, it is so wonderfully camouflaged to blend in with the surrounding surface, I probably would have missed it.
