Along the highway some properties are defined by stone walls.
When I have the time, I like to take the back roads home. Last Sunday, I took Hunt Road off of highway 4 and it meanders through Calaveras county and opens to a valley. Along the way I cut over to Rock Creek Road and I spied this bird in an old oak tree by a stream. It was fairly large and as you can see mostly white from the vantage point I had from the road. It seemed to have its watchful eye on the landscape in front of it.
Out for a morning walk in Calaveras County, near the Mokelumne River yesterday. Rolling hills and oaks in shadow with the sun light peeking through.
