One of the many scenes I had on a 20 day taxi road trip with 5 young Amish men (Aged 22-39). Now home, before a 7 day road trip to Northeastern USA. It feels like a 40 hour layover! Maybe after that I will be more consistent with posts!

I tried to upload a mp4 file of this car driving through this tree! Somewhat WP didn’t let me do that!?! Somewhere there is a photo of my father and a car driving through this Redwood tree in 1946! I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to see this tree or not! Now it happened! This is in the Redwood National Park, California!

I met Ruth on the Mist Trail that leads up to the Half-Dome and Vernal Falls. This photo was on the Footbridge with Vernal Falls behind us. She was friendly and encouraging. I also met a couple from England, as well as a young man from England. I hiked this trail and the Mirror Lake trail in the Yosemite Valley, for a total of 6.5 miles including the walk from the parking lot, and returning halfway to the trail entrance to make sure the van was locked. It hadn’t been locked!

A lady enjoying the Millersburg “Rails to Trails” trail which is a great place for walking. My wife was way ahead briskly walking her daily morning walk. I am lagging behind, with my camera and binoculars, getting distracted by birds and their sounds! I use the Merlin app, to identify bird sounds, and sometimes even get to see the birds. Looking forward to the Warbler migration which has already started, but will soon pick up speed! With the warm weather the leaves on the trees are starting to come out, which will give the warblers some cover, and make photographing them a challenge!

No photos, but was pleased to have seen an Eastern Meadow Lark, Eagle, Pileated Woodpecker and a Kestrel during the last week!
