There isn’t a lot of picture on either side of this gate, but it isn’t connected to a fence. It’s just being used to block access to the property behind it and down the horse trail. (the bottom sign caution that there are hazards of being in an area that is frequented by horses … and the risk is not a responsibility of the property owner)
Along the Larry Scott Trail south of Port Townsend, there is a fence post that someone has appropriated for a flower holder. I don’t know the story behind it, but as a frequent user of the trail (either bike or hike), I appreciate the effort. Here are some of the various bouquets.
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.
Mill Creek trail in Inyo National Forest in Northern California crosses some very fine grassy meadows. It’s a nice enough trail, but it takes a lot of driving on rough roads to get there. On the drive in, we saw a blonde colored black bear running across the road. No chance for a photo, unfortunately.
