About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

A claim-jumper, I presume, or at least a warning to would-be claim-jumpers.

Those gold rush days were rough!

What a great idea of visiting all the counties of California and posting photos!

We live full time in our RV so we travel all over.

That's right across from the little cafe where we ate breakfast in Jamestown! Did you see the railroad museum there? Really neat!
