Eldorado National Forest & Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest (Cellphone Photos)

I went on a drive yesterday with my family through Eldorado National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in California. We drove on State Route 88 and State Route 50. Here are cellphone photos I took. I brought my camera, but there was so little snow this year, I didn't feel the need to take my camera out. I was a little bit disappointed on this trip.

Scenic Drives in the SF Bay Area, CA (Cellphone Photos)

Recently, I took a few scenic drives with my mom around the San Francisco Bay Area, because we both needed to head out and get some fresh air. On March 30th, we drove from Livermore to San Jose via Mines Road and State Route 130. We visited Lick Observatory. Today, on April 1st, we drive along Calaveras Road from Sunol to Milpitas, and also to Morgan Territory Regional Preserve in Livermore, CA. Here are the cellphone photos I took on these 2 drives. I also had some fun and had my mom helped me take some photos of me on these 2 trips too.

Mission Peak Regional Preserve - Fremont, CA (Cellphone Photos)

I went on a hiking trip to the top of Mission Peak in Mission Peak Regional Preserve in Fremont, CA on March 11th, 2021. I hiked up Mission Peak from Sunol Regional Wilderness in Sunol, CA through San Francisco Water District land. I took scenery photos with my phone and mirrorless camera, and my mom helped me take a few photos of me with my phone. The photos from my mirrorless camera will be processed and posted at a later date. I hope you enjoy.

This was a very special hike for me. I have not been able to successfully make it up to the top of Mission Peak in almost 20 years! The last time I reached the peak, I was still a child. On the previous hike that I reached the peak, I hiked up with my family from the Stanford Avenue Staging Area in Fremont, CA.

Please note that if you are hiking on trails through San Francisco Water District land and Ohlone Regional Wilderness, you have to purchase an annual Ohlone Wilderness Permit.

This is an 100% crop of one of the photos I took with my mirrorless camera. This is of Mt. Hamilton and the Lick Observatory. It snowed quite a bit the day before. The RAW image has not been processed yet.
