Sunday and Monday

This was “Earth Day” Weekend, and on Sunday, April 21, 2013 I had the opportunity to go to the Highland Springs Trails Volunteers and Lake County Horse Council’s Earth Day Trail Repair Kick-off with Charlotte Orr and Carol Kunze of Tuleyome.  I walked some trails, got some great shots of the reservoir there, met a bunch of hard-working terrific people, learned a lot of about region, and also got to participate in their potluck picnic.  It was a great day… Photos will follow shortly.

On Monday, Earth Day itself, I stopped over at the WPA Rock Garden in Sacramento and walked with Sergeant Margie for a bit.  It was kind of hot (around 89-degrees), so we didn’t stay long, but I got a lot of photos — including one closeup of a male Carpenter Bee (AKA “Teddybear bee”) who was nice enough to pose for me.  You can see my standard gallery of shots from this remarkable place through my Sacramento County Walkabout page, and I’ll also be adding a mini-gallery of the new photos I took this day.  So stay tuned!
