Ancient sycamore

This tree -- my god, this tree. It has branches so long they skim the ground, a hundred feet -- no, more. No kidding.


Someone at some point propped one up -- see the metal post?


So it just kept growing.

In flight



Tiny plane, big sky.

A few minutes later, parrots:


A little later, more planes. They seem awfully close together.

Coyote speaks

We hadn't seen the coyote family here for more than a week, then a few days ago the father emerged.

He paced the ridge, barking, an urgent and persistent call that sent the dogs here into a frenzy:

he's barking, calling his mate

calling his family

He descended the trail and listened for a while.

Just a few minutes after he took off, headed into the little arroyo that holds the den, his mate appeared and followed. No sign of the pups -- only two now -- though we heard them last night, squeaky voices learning to copy their elder's howls.

Monday morning at the edge of the continent

Point Dume in the distance:

Marine layer far, far off shore:

And Walt, enjoying the start to the day.
