Saturday, December 8, 2018. Point Reyes National Seashore. I probably shouldn’t give the secret away, but the Tomales Point Trail is one of the best walks it’s possible to take—anywhere. Best known for its Tule Elk preserve, the trail will also put you under the flight paths of Red Tailed Hawks, Northern Harriers, Peregrine Falcons, Osprey, and more.

Here we have a Raptor on a Rock surveying its realm, which includes Point Reyes itself, some twenty miles to the south.

    These are gems. They belong in a museum. You bring wildlife aesthetics to me in un-thought-of ways which surprises me each time.

    I look forward to seeing more and more. You really are a plain light painter.

    Thank you!
