Virtual Photo Walks: The Roaring 20’s of Hearst Castle.
The Roaring 20’s of Hearst Castle: Journey back in time, with Erin Gates California Sate Parks Ranger, discover the beginnings of Hearst Castle, by looking at the 3 Guest Cottages, the first structures constructed at Hearst Castle. Explore each cottage, looking at how the art, architecture, and interior design all reflect William Hearst’s & Architect Julia Morgan’s vision of creating a Spanish Renaissance Village on top of a hill, in the middle of cattle ranch on the beautiful Central Coast of California, which he appropriately named “La Cuesta Encantada” or the Enchanted Hill. Discover some of the guests who stayed in these cottages, and hear stories of the guest’s experiences, including Edwin Hubble, George Bernard Shaw, & David Niven.

Virtual Photo Walks, Nara Japan at Mt. Wakakusa "Yamayaki"
Virtual Photo Walks at Nara Japan with Hiroshi Hayashi and Noriko Nagahori showing a torch is lit with sacred fire at Kasuga Taisha Shrine. This sacred fire is carried down to a small shrine at the foot of the hill by a parade of Buddhist monks. First, the hill is ignited with the sacred fire by members of Kofuku-ji, Todai-ji and Kasuga Taisha. Then 200 fireworks are launched and the hill continues to burn for some 30 minutes. With the fire brigade standing by, there’s no need to worry about the fire spreading. This fire spectacle can be seen from the surrounding towns, but Nara City which faces the hill offers the most beautiful views

Virtual Photo Walks with Cal State Parks & Friends of the Elephant Seal
Virtual Photo Walks was with Erin and Duffy at Piedras Blancas a great place to view these remarkable creatures during their time onshore.
Friends of the Elephant Seal is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about elephant seals and other marine life and teaching stewardship for the ocean off the central coast of California. It is a cooperating association with California State Parks. http://www.elephantseal.org/theseals.htm

The northern elephant seal, Mirounga angustirostris, is an extraordinary marine mammal. It spends eight to ten months a year in the open ocean, diving 1000 to 5800 feet deep for periods of fifteen minutes to two hours, and migrating thousands of miles, twice a year, to its land-based rookery for birthing, breeding, molting, and rest. Piedras Blancas is a great place to view these remarkable creatures during their time onshore.

The Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery spreads over 6 miles of shoreline around Point Piedras Blancas on the central coast of California. The viewing areas are located 90 miles south of Monterey, 5 miles north of Hearst Castle State Historical Monument in San Simeon, 1.5 miles south of Point Piedras Blancas. The viewing areas are open every day of the year, are wheelchair accessible, and free. No reservations required.

Help June Raise Funds Towards A Double Lung Transplant
Her lungs are only functioning at 16% and very little airflow making it extremely difficult to breath. She has also been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. Doctors have told there is nothing else they can do for her except the transplant. Insurance will only cover so much. The hospitals that would do the transplant are located out of state. Money is needed to cover at best 9 months away from home, which means renting an apartment or hotel fees, as well as co-pays, travel expenses, medications not covered by insurance and other out of pocket expenses.

Junie is one of the most caring people I know. She's always trying to help people even in her weakened condition. She is selfless, always willing to lend an ear to those that need it even when she herself is in pain. When I first met Junie she was full of energy. Now she can't even walk from her bedroom to the bathroom without getting out of breath and wheezing. You can see from the photos the affect this disease has had on her. The photos of her in the blue dress are from when she was healthy. She had a glow and was full of energy. Please donate and help Junie get back to her former glowing, energetic self. I know that with new lungs and the ability to breath properly again
