Point Lobos, Carmel


Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is the first headland south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and is gorgeous in the right weather.  There were seals down on the rocks, and dramatically changing light as the sun came in and out of the clouds.

DeLorean DMC-12


This gorgeous DeLorean is a daily driver for an enthusiast in Seattle, who notes its ownership is not as inaccessible as one might imagine.  It was built in Northern Ireland in 1981 or 1982.

Alpental Valley


This is the Alpental valley, seen from the saddle between Guye Peak and Cave Ridge.  There was a strong temperature inversion this day, so that it was quite cold indeed down in the fog of the parking lot, and much warmer here up the hill.

BNSF Locomotive - Foss River Bridge


BNSF 7953 is a V16 645E3 diesel-electric locomotive developing 3000hp.  It's seen here in the BNSF "Heritage" livery, leading a train westwards down the valley of Highway 2.  It's on the approach to the Foss River Bridge, an impressive structure from 1909.
