Dumont By Moonlight847 viewsThe Full Moon was illuminating the Sand Dunes at Dumont Dunes, CA located near Death Valley. It was a nice evening with temperatures in the 70's. This photo was taken March 3rd, 2007 just before 9:00 pm. It was a 20 second exposure @ f3.5 (ISO 400) taken with my Canon Digital Rebel.

Sundown Dunes847 viewsThe setting Sun was casting an orange hue on the Sand Dunes at Dumont. Dumont is located 30 miles North of Baker CA near the Southern tip of Death Valley. It was a windy day and the winds in the upper atmosphere were affecting the clouds. I m not sure I would classify this cloud as Lenticular but it was getting close. Taken 3/25/06.

The Bear Is Back841 viewsThe Bear is back after a short hiatus. I had heard that Bears don’t hibernate in warm climates like Southern California but maybe this one actually did hibernate for a short time.

He was actually on the street 3 nights in a row this week. He got into trash cans on a couple of nights and left a large pile of Scat in the street. Leila was excited. She was picking up the Bear’s scent on our morning walk.
