Vistas Enroute to Pinnacles National Park

There are two entrances to the Pinnacles NP. The route to the eastern entrance is less taken but in my opinion much more scenic and interesting than the “main” entrance from the west. We never made it to the park. The sun and clouds spotlighting the hills stopped us in our tracks and we spent the afternoon cruising the route and photographing this beautiful scenery.

Along The Oregon Coast

This is a trip I’ve been meaning to do for a long time and it didn’t disappoint. The coastline along northern California and southern Oregon is darkly beautiful. Often cold, overcast, foggy, and windy, and not always comfortable, the beaches especially, reveal scenes that are dramatic, mysterious, and grand. Here are some examples:
