Today there was a big crowd on the bluff, with a bunch of antiques on display. Mrs. Bytemobile shot a picture of me on her iPhone during a gap in the passing humanity. Answer is on the way. Thanks!

My wife and I had a look at the Visitor Center, then did a loop hike up through Bear Gulch caves, to the reservoir and back down. It was pretty warm, but nothing like the 105 degrees we heard it hit last weekend.

We were camped at Lake Almanor and made this our major entertainment for the day. There were seven of us, including my two-month-old granddaughter, Adventure Baby. The trail was packed with all sorts of folks, and I heard at least three or four different languages. There is still ice and snow over parts of the trail, and a warning sign posted at the beginning of the trail, that travel is not advised. We went anyway and saw and smelled the whole thing. Thanks!

Mrs. Bytemobile really wanted to come out here, so on our last full day in Hawaii, we spent the day visiting this beach, and another beach about 20 miles down the road that has turtles and black sand. We were amazed by the clarity of the water -- you could see right through the breakers. It was a bit windy, but we took a dip and had lunch on the beach. Thanks!

We stayed in Volcano Village a couple nights and joined up with a tour that took us down to the county-run lava viewing area. Great experience!

I wondered why all the cars were parked in the Thornton Beach lot this early on a foggy Sunday morning. I found the zigzag route to the Old One, and on the way spotted a route to the beach. I turns out that cars in the lot probably belonged to the several fishermen on the beach, and I used some of their ropes to help myself up and down the path to the beach. The sand was wet around ground zero for the cache site, but the water was well away from it at 9 am this morning. The hike here was quite interesting, and the geology lesson a bonus.

I did some cache maintenance in Portola Valley today, then looped back home via Skyline. It was windy up here this afternoon, as usual, and the views were not bad. Thanks!

We are camped at Seacliff for the weekend, and I headed out this morning for a few caches to the north. I guess this spot is now a two-fer. I will post a picture when I get home, although I don't know who would want to see a picture of me and my GPSr.

This was our first visit to Mono Lake. Several signs make visitors aware of the lake levels at different points in time. We saw several interpretive signs that were in the water, and will have to be moved to accomodate the (slowly) rising water level. Thanks!

We read the cache description, hiked the beach, and used the interesting-looking restrooms nearby. I took a picture up the beach toward the third waypoint which I will upload when I get back home to the San Jose area. I also took a picture of the lifeguard towers, which have all been hauled off the beach for the winter.

We were headed to Santa Paula for lunch with our son, but had a little extra time, so we stopped by La Conchita to have a look around. The landsides were pretty incredible. There were still closed streets and some work going on.

I decided to come up to Sanborn for a several new caches since my last visit. This was the first and second stop. I can see that there is lots of this park that I haven't explored. Thanks for setting this up.

I finally made it out to see the dig today at lunchtime. The fencing was still up and there was a canopy and table with a few flyers about Columbian Mammouths, but the bones are gone. I guess they will scout the area a little more, then close up shop.

I got up here a little after 8 am on a pretty nice Saturday morning. I have been up here geocaching before, but never hiked the Fault Trail. I spotted a bobcat on the hill above Station 3, but he spotted me about the same time and didn't stay around for a photo. As I was headed back from Station 9, a deer came charging up through the woods, stopped on the trail and had a look at me, then went charging off again. Thanks for your efforts, WoW, in putting together this cache.
