I'm a day late for #MountainMonday but yesterday was a bit crazy. Today is too, but slightly less so. This photograph is from a glorious winter day a few years ago in Yosemite. Trying to reach the brilliant sun are Cathedral Spires and Rock.

Happy #MountainMondayOnTuesday :)

It is Friday!!! At least I think so, my brain has not only been off on what day of the week it is... but also what week it is all week long. But I have lots of #FridaysAreBokehlicious notifications so I hope it's Friday :D

This is a bud from a Deer Brush (Ceanothus integerrimus). I have a love/hate relationship with these plants. They ARE pretty when blooming or in the bud stage like this one. But they are also quite fragrant. While not stinky, they aren't really pleasant smelling either. They're found around much of California, along the coastal scrub and Sierra foothills on up to the mixed conifer/lower montane forests..

The Rostrum, Yosemite National Park.

Snow days in Yosemite are just extra magical.

Moonrise over Crater Lake

I'm going back in time a bit with this one - to my first epic road trip to Oregon.

We went on lots of family camping trips when I was little, and Crater Lake is one of those places that really stuck with me. It was always on my to-do list to go back as an adult, and finally, almost 6 years ago, I did. I didn't get to stay long, but camped one magical night before continuing on.

Directly under the moon is Mt Scott, and the remains of Mt. Mazama.

Getting to Crater Lake is much like traveling to Yosemite Valley. In both cases you can't see the destination until you're blown away by their splendor. Standing on the rim is almost unnerving - so much power was released when the top of Mt. Mazama was blown off. If you head east, you can go to the "sand" dunes where much of the innards landed. It's not really sand, it's mostly pumice and ash and much coarser than most sand dunes. But an interesting place to explore.

Rim of the World

This spot has always been a bit special to me, even though it's a simple overlook. If I was turned slightly to the left (and there were no clouds) I can see the hill in front of where I grew up. There's a crazy back road that winds through the canyon below that is beautiful... and crazy in the spring. It's two way traffic, but only one lane wide :)

This day was extra special, as it was late in the winter after the Rim Fire. I'm sure there were bits still smouldering up the canyon I photographed this. But already there's signs of regrowth and rebirth. Lower in the canyon green grasses are sprouting, and even some of the hardier chaparral plants are regrowing. The light dusting of snow was a welcome sight too.

There's a number of peaks in this shot, on the far right is North Mountain, in the center far off is Haystack Peak. Hiding in the clouds on the left is Duckwall Mountain, it may be just out of the frame too. Duckwall was one of the key firelines in the fire. Holding that ridge, and keeping the fire from advancing up the Clavey is what kept the Rim Fire from being an even bigger fire and effecting more homes and lives. It was big enough. To give you an idea, it burned the entire canyon below, plus down river several miles, and some 25 air miles up the canyon. I'm sure I've posted this video before, but it just blows me away every time I see it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_eGiGG1B-Q It's in the area of this photo.

Fire season is upon us already. Enjoy the outdoors, but be smart and careful. :)

I somehow missed the tulip bloom this year. I'm not sure how that happened, but we have had a really wonky late winter/early spring. I've seen lots of beautiful daffodils, but not so many tulips.

This lovely lady was blooming a few springs ago at a nearby winery that has hundreds of varieties blooming throughout their grounds.

Also on the grounds is the Heritage Museum (https://www.gocalaveras.com/travel-directory/ironstone-heritage-museum/) where you can see the largest single chunk of gold found in the Mother Lode. It's 44 pounds/16.4 kgs!
