Just a couple b&w of a tree when I was out walking the dog. What caught my attention was the smoothness of the tree trunk and how the sun light lit up one side of the tree leaving a nice dark shadow on the other. Taken with my HTC

Two days to go

Well in two days I will start orentation for school. 3 weeks of it then classes start on the 29th. looking forward to it but nervous at the same time. I really am looking forward to it and I believe I made a good choice as to my major. BS in Communications with emphisis on Journalism. I believe that with my passion for both photography and writing, that I will be able to learn what is needed to express what I am trying to say as well as learn how to better drat and edit my writings before they get published by any means.

 

I will keep everyone updated hopefully on a bidaily basis, but most certainly a weekly basis. Wish me good luck!!

Our Day Out

Well as promised heres about our day out on Friday.

Our good friend Big Mike came over to take us out to a lil known spot up in Cajon Pass in San Bernardino. It had a nice little free flowing stream coming down out of the mountains. It was a very scenic spot if you ask me. Just the right mixture of desert, greenery, mountains and nature. So we pulled off to the side of the road and we let the kids play in the stream, which we found at its deepest was less than 18″.

Well I happened to hear a familiar sound. The whining of diesel locomotives. So I walked just up the short hill to catch a glimpse of it.

So after I could not see much of the trains, I turned my attention back to nature, and the kids…lol

We found this but not sure if its a shell of some kind or rock. But it was neat looking and took it home with us.

So this was our day. Letting the kids play in the stream, hiking up the stream a bit and just relaxing and enjoying the sun, water and nature. We are already planning to take the other two boys up there as they were in school during the time we were out. We are wanting to spend all day out there and have a picnik. But next time bring suntan lotion…lol

Also me and Big Mike are planning a day hiking trek there and further up the stream as well as do some exploring. Hoping to find other spots to take the bunch to. So stay tuned for further updates on our future adventues.

Coming up in the next month or so, we are planning a camping trip to the nearby lake where we were so also stay tuned for updates on that as well.

All in all we had a fantastic day. For me it felt good to get out of the house and experience the outdoors again without having to go to a doctors appointment. And it helped with my depression and it helped my soul. So I am eager to get back out again.

Till next time,
