Felton, Santa Cruz, and Davenport, CA

On June 4th, 2019, I took a trip to Fall Creek of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in Felton, CA, Bonny Doon Beach in Santa Cruz and Davenport, CA, and Panther Beach in Santa Cruz, CA. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Message From The Photographer: If you've been following me on social media, you'd know I've been dealing with vision impairment and gradual vision loss since August 2018. The conditions are neurological, so my vision isn't impaired the same amount on a daily basis, but overall it seems to be going down hill. It has slowed down and made taking photos, processing photos, using computers, etc... very challenging and somewhat depressing. Some days it is impossible for me to take photos or process them. I know these photos are from a very long time ago, but I'm only just starting to get around in processing them as I'm only able to work on them at a very slow pace. I hope you can understand, and I hope you enjoy these photos.

I started off my trip with a hike in Fall Creek Unit. Since I've taken a lot of photos here in the past, I only ended up taking 1 photo. Also, my vision impairment and vision loss made it very hard for me to see around in the dense foliage of the forest floor, which lead me to cutting the hike short as I had a lot of trouble. I always hike with someone else to make sure I remain safe on the trips.
