Gale, Bruce, Lisa and I went for a late afternoon hike on the PG&E loop. I missed (but they heard and saw, and pointed out!) a fat rattlesnake near the start, and a king snake near the end of the hike. Also at least 3 alligator lizards. A few young deer were grazing at the start, ignoring people, and were still there at the end. Also plenty of turkeys. This was my first hike with my new camera, so there are a bunch of shots where I was experimenting with the camera.
All images Copyright © 2013 by Dave Olson unless otherwise noted. Pictures are taken mostly on my Nikon S9500, and most have links to the google map location where they were taken (if the GPS worked).

Click on pictures for a medium size picture that fits on most web browsers The large picture can then be viewed by clicking in turn on the medium size picture. The large images are good for seeing fine detail, and for printing. If they are larger than 3000 pixels in any dimension, they are shown at 1/2 size; the original full image is available on request for those. Movies are MPEG4 movies (new ones are H.264), and the thumbnail gives the size of the movie.
