Bishop Ranch Regional Preserve (Cellphone Shots) - San Ramon, CA

On February 5th, 2019, I drove to Bishop Ranch Regional Preserve in San Ramon, CA for photos. The San Francisco Bay Area was lucky to get some extremely rare snow, so I was out photographing it. I took photos with my cellphone and with my mirrorless camera. You can see my mirrorless camera photos here.

Lake Alpine & SR-4 (Part 3) - Stanislaus National Forest

On December 6th, 2018, I took a trip into the Stanislaus National Forest in California up to Lake Alpine on State Route 4. As you know, Ebbetts Pass and much of State Route 4 through the Sierras is closed during the winter, so I parked at the Lake Alpine Sno-Park and snowshoed out to Lake Alpine. Here are photos from my trip. The photos are split into 3 blog posts.
