Forest reflections

Posted on

I was out for a hike after the first snow of the season in Tahoe. There is a creek that flows next to the trail and a shimmer caught my eye. The creek was littered with pine needles and a small opening within the debris was this forest reflection.

Erratic on basalt

Posted on Updated on

A few weeks ago I went to go find these basalt columns off of highway 88 near Silver Lake.  There was lots of bushwacking since there is no established trail and the cairns that lead you out there are random at best. I found them and they were pretty cool but there was these boulders of granite on top of the columns. I thought the contrasting colors played well against each other.
