Weds PM Break

Took off a little early today to get out and enjoy a brisk sunny Fall afternoon, with the shadows getting long and canyons chilly from full shade days. Here's a couple of photos from the overlook at the top of Matillija Canyon, CA Highway 33, which is a popular ride. CalTrans just repaved nine miles between Wheeler Springs and Rose Valley, so the pavement is perfect. It won't stay that way, but for right now it's fun! Not much traffic on weekday afternoons - weekends are a different story.

These are quickie Blackberry photos. In the first, you can see the Pacific Ocean and that strip of land behind it, which is Santa Cruz Island. The air is very clear since the wind is gusting to 35mph.

It's pictures like these that make me long for a bike that much more. If only we had mountains in FL!

Another Island Photo

Here's another view of Santa Cruz Island as taken from W Mountain Drive behind Santa Barbara taken today. (Yes, another brisky breezy day here.) In the foreground is Santa Barbara Harbor, then you're looking across the channel to SC Island. The island is one of five in Channel Islands National Park, one of America's best kept secrets and often called "America's Galapagos Islands". When I was younger, I was fortunate to live and work on the islands as a ranger for two years and a dive technician/logistics officer for the Kelp Forest Monitoring research program the park conducts with local universities and research groups each summer. Check it out at http://www.nps.gov/chis . Sorry though, no motos allowed out there. Bring your hiking boots and camera!
