Pine ridge trail fall colors


Once again on the Pine Ridge Trail , we entered same at the China Camp trail head which is located on Tassajara rd. 35 miles n/w of Greenfield Ca. .

This area of the state is one of the prettiest wilderness areas I have ever visited in California . This was my 5 th hike here . The trail goes from China Camp to the coast at Big Sur . For more photos of the trail see older postings titled Pine Ridge .

Today I am posting some beautiful color that floods

the canyons and valleys of

this wilderness . The photos start at the Church creek divide , see the above sign .

These photos include an up dated photo of Jack English with Wayne and myself in his kitchen , he cooked for us on his wood burning stove again . Remember Jack is 92 years old ! He still hikes ! Also pictured here are photos of Junipero Serra mountain viewed from the Church Creek Trail , and caves with native American pictographs , and a 110 year old shack . Sorry about not giving directions of the caves as they are on private property . I also included a photo of Bill Sullivan , a lettuce grower and friend of Jack . Bill is an avid hiker and monthly packs some groceries in to Jack we enjoyed his greatly company . I f you have any questions about this post e-mail me

Hiking again the Pozo area
located approximately 30 miles east of Santa Margarita Ca. This time I had a real camera with me and not a point and shoot that I used to photograph the elk posting last week . I deleted those of last week . I hope that you will enjoy these a lot more . Remember to double click on the image and it will enlarge a little .
The last photo is of a bull coming out of a drainage .The photo at the top is a Golden Eagle . The bird landing in the tree is a Red Tail Hawk . The bird in flight is an Eagle also.
This day I was blessed to have shot more than 150 images . To bad I cant share all !
If you have any questions e-mail me at joeramirez@charter.
A special thanks to Jim Bartlett , my photo assistant , as he is very enthusiastic and has a sharp eye !
