As a group, we saw this deer hanging around on the hillside above us.
David stopped briefly to take a photo.

Sierra Clubbers at the water tank atop the hill.
Sierra Clubbers starting down from the water tank hill. I jogged to get ahead of them for a snapshot, and that's where i really realized that I was in more pain than was manageable. (see blog post link in album description)
Headed back to the car alone, taking photos. Backlit oat grass and hills.
I liked how these birds had distributed themselves across the wires, like musical notes on a staff! (Crappy little camera didn't allow a really good shot here.)
Redwing blackbird cheered at me as I went by beneath the wires.
Same male deer on the same hillside--but he watched me very carefully as I approached.
This is apparently why--his girlfriend down on the road below me.
The buck continued to watch cautiously until his gal had made it a safe distance away from me.
Rabbit crossed my path.
The trail through the woods. Getting darker but still pretty.
Creek with the camera's flash.
Creek without the flash. Which do you like better?
Another shot of the creek--in the darkening woods, I liked how it captured the light in the sky and brought it to earth.
Unidentified but interesting long flower bract.
Yet another deer trailside.
Proof that I was there.

The creek a little farther on.
A little waterfall.

Flowers on and around a mailbox on my way to the car.
