Artist Palette, Death Valley National Park, California. ===========================
Artist Palette is best done in the late afternoon when exposed minerals and volcanic ash make the hills erupt in fireworks of color. ===========================
#Tbt to when #abc7bayarealife took a trip to Santa Rosa and stopped by @safariwest!
With nearly 1,000 animals, Safari West aims to introduce a variety of amazing creatures to visitors and ignite curiosity and compassion toward wildlife. Visitors can experience close up encounters with the animals, learn about conservation and wildlife preservation, and maybe even see baby animals!

So, we've been raving about Big Sur for quite a bit. But here's the down side: rock slides. I'm sure you've heard plenty about them. The slide between Mud Creek and Salmon Creek Station is expected to close that portion of Highway 1 through 2018. That means no through-routes of Highway 1. For trailers and other large rigs, that means Highway 1 is an in-out trip. But we have a truck camper and are taking the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road out.⠀
Oh boy, is it curvy and steep.

Yesterday I was testing the 70-200mm f4 when I picked up this guy at the bottom of the hill. Loved the variety of the colors and he provided the perfect reference for scale and if you saw my story then you already know how the day ended. (With a pretty epic sunset)
