If you haven’t noticed, I really love going through old adventures and old albums. This was one of my first days after I bought my camera last year. I drove out to Grand Haven to mess around with it. It happened to be a beautiful day with perfect wind so the shoreline was filled with kit boarders. I was on the pier taking pictures of them and after a while. There was one surfer that was getting massive air, it didn’t take long before he realized I was taking pictures so he would get very close to the pier and lift off... he would jump and the wind would take him. I spoke with him after and I learned a ton that day. I would love to get more into action or extreme sports shooting!
Missing the rain here in Oregon. I don’t think we’ve had any precipitation since mid June at least. This summer’s a dry one for sure...
Happy Fri-yay! 🌻🌻🌻 Anybody else psyched to get outside this weekend?!
Back to ICELAND: This was our final stop of our South Coast Iceland tour. For the record "foss" means waterfall in icelandic. With that being said, hearing a few people speak about the tour as a whole, this was many tourists favorite stop. This may have to do the the trail that goes behind the falls. Yes, you can hike up either the right or left side of the falls and walk behind the falls for a unique perspective. The day we were there, the wind was blowing directly at the falls so the mist was soaking anyone who ventured behind the falls.
I would highly recommend heading out to Seljalandsfoss, especially with it being only about 75 miles outside of Reykjavík.
Deep in the redwood grove.

She enjoyed baking this "sand cake" almost as much as she enjoyed scrambling on the rocks! This girl is in her element

Hike of the Week -
GET OUTSIDE TREK WITH BEAR YUBA LAND TRUST:
Saturday August 18, 2018 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Distance: 2 – 4 miles based on the fitness level and desire of the group
Meeting Location: Gracie Road Trailhead: Take either Gracie Road or Banner Lava Cap Road east from Nevada City. The parking area is located on Gracie Road about 700 feet downhill from the intersection with Banner-Lava Cap Road. Look for a “Cascade Canal Access Trail” sign at the parking area. This is where the hike begins.
Join us for this pleasant Get Outside Trek on August 18 at Woodpecker Wildlife Preserve as part of BYLT’s free docent-led public hike series. This Preserve is located on land formerly owned and managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). It was donated to BYLT by a group called Saving Special Places in 1999. Old growth trees and snags provide critical wildlife habitat for many species of woodpeckers, including the largest in North America, the Pileated Woodpecker.
The Preserve is a mixed conifer and hardwood forest largely dominated by incense cedar, Douglas fir, big-leaf maple and black oak. Hazelnut and mountain dogwood are scattered throughout the understory.
The Cascade Canal crosses the Preserve and a continues 4.5-miles. The Orene Wetherall Trail branches off from this main trail for an exciting 1.2-mile loop trail which winds through Woodpecker Wildlife Preserve.
