Seems like I used to know an hombre by that name. I heard he was dead."



Death Valley Dan: "Not hardly."

Not to hijack the thread, but this is slightly related: You can also carry a 1/4" stud (to thread into the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera) with a non-stretchy, strong cord, like parachute cord, tied to it. Tie the other end to a big washer and you have a 2 oz., extremely compact camera sta...

The Tamron chest harness isn't bad. I just sling my camera over my neck/shoulder, with the strap going under one arm, and tuck the lens back into the space between my kidney and the pack. It stays fairly stable in there and I can quick-draw it pretty well for when the sheep go galloping by! The tric...

Steve, I think you got it right all around. Mesquite Dunes, Badwater, and Artist's Palette.

Unlikely that they would have strayed much further than that for a production like you describe.

I just want to second David Bricker's advice. Driving down from Fresno, and having to come the south way to avoid the passes (late Feb is pretty much the middle of winter in the Sierras - those passes sometimes don't open until June!) you'll want to head straight in to PSR. That place is GREAT, they...

There's also a flock of parrots in San Francisco, on Telegraph Hill. Birds that were "pets" and then escaped or were released. A documentary was made http://www.wildparrotsfilm.com/

Just because you're crazy doesn't mean you aren't seeing parrots.


Or something.

Funny - while you were on Corkscrew, I was directly across the valley on Leaning Rock, looking across at you all! Looks like a good hike.

"So this is how the crap I see in the desert starts out." Have to agree with you there. No doubt I'll be packing some of those flowers etc. out of the canyons in years to come! As for the self-righteous postings above, I can't help remembering my grandfather, who smoked himself to death (2 packs/da...

Probably seen more often around F.C. than anywhere else, if only because of the easy food and the people that feed wildlife.

They're fairly common in the park, but they're (normally) nocturnal and shy.

This cat started hanging around the Inn (the staff may have been feeding it) and then actually jumped up on the shoulders of a woman. She had tiny puncture wounds but if that bobcat had actually been attacking her, she'd have been in the hospital. I think it wasn't really attacking but doing what ha...
