You don't walk a #Cat. You wait for a cat to walk you ๐Ÿ˜‚.
New routine I am doing - at 630am, #Apricat and I will spend 30 minutes walking the apartment gardens. Most of the time we just stare at the view from the top of the hill. Then, it is back to the apartment for breakfast, and I leave for my morning walk at 730am. I am a morning lark & I find myself happy that I breathed in the morning air so early. Maybe I will enjoy this. ๐Ÿ™‚

The second day included bagging of Boulder Peak, the high point of the entire Marble Mountain Wilderness. Then I took a different way down through Second Valley.
The blog post is here: https://valhikes.blogspot.com/2023/08/boulder-boulder-peak-and-second-valley.html

Upper Wright Lake, Marble Mountain Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

A small, reflective lake surrounded by steep sides growing with conifers. Well, except for the bulge of rock and the cleft to the right of it. Through the cleft, a single distant peak (Boulder Peak, the wilderness high point) can be seen.
Second Valley Trail, Marble Mountain Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

A gentle diagonal slope of green on the right is bisected by a thin dirt trail. The slope becomes pine trees in the near distance. Above the trees, a panorama of long ridges of peaks, one after the other, vanish into the far distance.
Marble Mountain from the top of Boulder Peak, Marble Mountain Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Wide, stark white peaks poke out of the otherwise green/pink/yellow bumps of a lot of peaks scattered about the various distances. Nearby is a valley sloping gently to the right with a small lake with a smaller island. Toes from boots poke up at the bottom.
Second Valley, Marble Mountain Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Gentle green slope vanishes as it gets a little steeper. At the right edge, a ridge of light rock with sharp black points rises almost vertically. In the distance are mountains and above there are clouds forming.

I always pass by these beautyberry bushes on my daily walks, and I can't help but admire them. They're so pretty. ๐Ÿ’œ

Out for a walk. Now sitting at the stairs area of an office building with a cup of chilled Americano. I am thinking this is exactly how I want my life to be. To me, success is being able to live the life you want and I consider myself successful. No debt, a simple life, with a very naughty cat to take care of, and vegetables growing at my balcony.
And as I was typing this bird shit literally landed on my head.
I hear that's good luck ๐Ÿ˜‚

In Woche 37 wurde es sehr sportlich in der #52WochenFotoChallenge von @norberteder

37/52 Sport
Fly Free
Until late afternoon of this warm and sunny day, quite a few paragliders were still in the air - following the dream of free flying.

#outside #sport #paraglider #fly #freedom #nature #mood #availableLight #photography #52wochenchallenge #darktable #paperg

:nikon: :darktable:

A paraglider prepares for landing with still some distance to the ground. We see the pilot with the legs pulled up, the full para-glider above with stripes of green, yellow and blue. It is a landscape picture with very soft light from the already quite low standing sun. Haze softens the silhouettes of the woods and shapes of meadows and mountains in the background. The right part of the foreground is made of the silhouettes of two coniferous trees. Some large clouds can be guessed in the hazy sky.

3rd and final day at the north end of the Russian Wilderness: A morning visit to Albert Lake, then a little extra PCT time before returning to the car on the PCT the other direction.

Paynes Lake, Russian Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Reflective water with light colored granite rising almost vertically behind it. Some shelves exist in the rocks and these form green lines, the deepest even with pine trees growing. A little of the edge is visible to the right, also quite green and with a pine.
Northbound on the Pacific Crest Trail, Russian Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Three peaks are visible, starting with a cut off one on the left and going to the right in the distance. These are rounded with bare granite tops and east (right) sides green with conifers. The rest is somewhat bare. It all slopes down and vanishes to the right. Down the middle is a light colored, narrow and smooth trail with a few rocks lining the outside.
Butterflies and a bee, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

A mass of flowers made up of grey-purple balls with a ring of lavender blooms around the edge have attracted three butterflies and a bee. The butterflies are white with small black markings and a single spot that is pink surrounded by black. They have furry black bodies. They tend to blend into the flowers slightly. The bee is a bright and strong yellow with black stripes and stands out glaringly.
Smith Lake, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Light granite rocks slope down, getting steeper as they go, to a bowl full of deep blue water. The far side encircling it has scattered conifers as the slopes climb again, but much lowers. Beyond them, there are some green hills and then a wide valley with long, low ridges running along it. Past that, the high shape of snow covered Mount Shasta is just visible on the right.

Why have we basically made it #illegal to be a kid in #public?

#Kids cannot be outside without their parents constantly watching them, they cannot play on the #street (because we made them too dangerous) or even sidewalks in some #cities, and even loitering (existing in public) is illegal in many places. We've made kid-friendly #transportation such as bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades illegal in many places. It's no wonder why kids are rarely found #outside anymore.

I spent a little more time around the north end of the Russian Wilderness, making a little loop visiting lakes and taking in a stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail.

Day 1 was a short one, just a few miles along to a lakeside camp.

Etna Summit, Klamath National Forest, California, USA

Panorama picture taken across a paved road to a valley extending into the distance. There's a lot of haze making each ridge along the edge a little greyer as they stack up. Some nearby peaks are sharp and pointy on the left, showing a lot of bare granite and a few trees. Above, scattered clouds leave the foreground in shade.

Fuzzy and fat bee sits still with wings crossed on a flower with thin purple petals and a yellow center. Two other flowers are nearby, all seen on from the side.
View of the upper of Ruffey Lakes and Etna Mountain, Klamath National Forest, California, USA.

In the foreground, a dirt and rock trail winds downward past yellow flowers (sulphur buckwheat) toward a lake. The lake is seen in shadow on the right, far below the level of the visible trail. Behind at the middle left, a peak rises up, mostly covered with trees and other growth, but with two little rocky points, a bit blunt, right at the top. The right side drops to a distant valley getting lost in the grey air.
Sunset on the upper of Ruffey Lakes, Klamath National Forest, California, USA.

Lake water reflects a darkening sky and pine trees that line the far side. The near side is bare rock and seen in the left corner. Above, a thin cloud has turned purple and higher and even thinner clouds above are still pink, but the sky itself still has some blue. This is looking east as west and the direct sunset is hidden by a tall ridgeline.

There's still scattered burn and surreal twice burned areas on the third day backpacking, but there's also unburned and healthy after the burn areas. My plans had to morph a little and I got in tagging a peak right at the end!

Twice burned forest. Old trunks jut upward, getting narrower quickly. Around them, there are only a few fallen pieces of trunk, far fewer than would be expected. The ground is sandy with a thin green layer.
Doe Lake, on the way down to it. A lake sits, grabbed by rocks on one side as if by a giant hand. Scattered trees grow on the rocks to the right with thicker trees on the peak directly ahead and down the slope below.

As an adult immigrant to the US, I did not expect that the things I would love the most about it are the national and state parks, and municipal services (my city runs an affordable โ€˜cabin in the woodsโ€™ program just outside Yosemite, as well as the largest film photography darkroom on the west coast).

I like to tell my friends from home โ€˜no matter how remote, the campsite has a bathroom and the bathroom has toilet paperโ€™ (even though I still bring my own portable bidet)

Animals that have predators know by instinct that they can never relax. As they feed, at least one of them has an ear open for potential danger. I believe that we humans can learn a lot from nature, if we're willing to let it teach us.

Looking at the upper part of the white wooden front door of a private house. In the vertical direction, the door consists of three parts. 
The middle part contains a white frame with two rectangles. At the top of this frame there is a small board that acts like a rain guard for the frame below. Inside the frame, the top white rectangle is offset inward. The rectangle below is again a white wooden frame holding a leaded glass ornament with a symmetrical geometric shape. 
To the left and right of the center section, the vertical profile of the door is like a wave that slopes from the center to the edges.
Below the glass ornament we see the upper half of a gray-green wreath with Marguerite-like flowers.

Tropical Mockingbird in Punda Curacao ยฉDebra Martz At first glance I thought this was a Northern Mockingbird, out of range.
