02-25-18 – Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness

[flickr_set id=”72157699187445430″]

The Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness is a rolling landscape of badlands which offers some of the most unusual scenery found in the Four Corners Region. Time and natural elements have etched a fantasy world of strange rock formations made of interbedded sandstone, shale, mudstone, coal, and silt. The weathering of the sandstone forms hoodoos – weathered rock in the form of pinnacles, spires, cap rocks, and other unusual forms. Fossils occur in this sedimentary landform. Translated from the Navajo language, Bisti (Bis-tie) means “a large area of shale hills.” De-Na-Zin (Deh-nah-zin) takes its name from the Navajo words for “cranes”.

02-10-18 – San Francisco Day Trip

I flew to San Francisco for a day trip with some friends to play tourist. We visited Sutro Baths, The Golden Gate Recreational Area, and The Painted Ladies.

The Sutro Baths was a large, privately owned public saltwater swimming pool complex in the Lands End area of the Outer Richmond District in western San Francisco, California. Built in 1896, it is located near the Cliff House, Seal Rocks, and Sutro Heights Park.

The mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. It provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End.

One of the most photographed locations in San Francisco, Alamo Square’s famous “postcard row” at Hayes and Steiner Streets is indeed a visual treat. A tight, escalating formation of Victorian houses is back-dropped by downtown skyscrapers, providing a stunning contrast.

Descanso in Spring

I spent a lovely morning with flickr friends exploring Descanso Gardens. It is always lovely in the spring as things are coming into bloom, and was made even more so on this morning as everything was still covered in raindrops from one of SoCal’s infrequent rains.
