Sundial Bridge and burnt park

Today was a very beautiful day in Redding. We walked over the Sundial bridge and the nearby trails surrounding. Just over the bridge and over another small bridge you come to a small trail and many of the trees are burnt from last years fire near the bridge.

Tacoma the Cat

My dad's cat is so funny! She is very skittish around strangers, but very trusting once she knows you. She does love to take walks, she is like a dog. When you mention walk and put your coat and shoes on she knows, it's time.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I painted these cards a couple years back, for family and friends. I used watercolors and these watercolor paper cards.

These are my homemade Valentine's cookies. They are a simple sugar cookie. They are not calorie free, or non fattening, if you were wondering. I enjoy decorating these cookies with children. It is a fun activity for them.

Trinity River and Cat

This is the Trinity River taken Sunday. The cat, Tacoma, went for a walk with me down to the river. She likes to take walks, roll in the sand and do stunts up the trees. Unfortunately, I did not get video of the stunts. Sorry, next time.

Highway 299 - Hello More Road

On the Highway 299W from Redding to Weaverville they have been preparing for expansion, I believe. I noticed trees were cut, some are very old trees. It is sad to see.

Here is an article in BBC News about old growth trees in the western U.S. just like these.

Mt. Lassen

Add ImageOn the drive from Redding to Weaverville at Whiskeytown you can see Mt. Lassen. It was a clear beautiful day yesterday and the view was spectacular. I enhanced the photographs a bit in Adobe's Photoshop.

I have a weakness for fresh made crepes. They taste so wonderful with some fresh fruit. The other night I made them for dessert. I did not get a chance to take pictures of the final dessert. Just so you know they were delicious!

Birds in the Yard

There are lots of birds in Northern California and especially near the rivers. It is hard to get pictures of birds as they are frightened quite easily, but here are a few pics that I managed to get the other day. A couple of woodpecker's and not sure what other kind of cute little bird this is. Nor what the next bird, but the last is a Woodpecker.

I went to Seattle a couple of years ago and these are the pics that I took. I do enjoy the city, it is very beautiful.

Sunset Trinity River

I took these photos some time ago but then forgot about them. The sun was going down and I noticed the glow as the sun went behind the mountain.
