Exploring California #partnine #SantaCruz

Let’s start with a picture right away. We finished our drive to Santa Cruz, one of the coolest places around pacific coast highway. So what we were gonna see there was a lot of surfers and water and waves of course. More Surfers some of them doing cool stuff. At least as far as I could rate it. Others not so much, still way better than I’ll ever surf. Yes this is going to be a whole entry with pictures of people surfing. Okay maybe one or two pictures where you could see the ocean and the other side of the bay. And maybe one picture of a ship in…

Exploring California #parteight #PacificCoastHighway

So we’re done, let’s get home.  Okay, it’s not that easy we’re up north and have to travel to the south now.  There’s going to be a few stops, as Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most impressive Landscapes. Also there are birds, and you all do know that I do appreciate Bird pictures. And there are mor birds, wait what? This ain’t birds, these are kite surfers! There’s also a bridge. Yes there is a bridge, it’s not as red as the one in black and white but it’s a bridge and I figured there’s too little pictures of this angle. Living there must be so nice, weird,…

Exploring California #partfive

#gebirgsbach

We left at Kings Canyon, on our way back out of there I took this picture. Next Stop: Yosemite. We went there without any preparations and when we arrived we’ve been told it’s famous for waterfalls, but they’re more impressive during spring than during fall as of the melting water. Not too unimpressive anyway. I So this was the first waterfall to be seen by us in Yosemite, and there’s more to come, a lot more to come. Contrary to the image I had of California before this trip there’s a lot of green and also water in California. This River or call it a creek has to be impressive…

Exploring California #partfour

So here’s where we left last time, at a burned grassland with some partial burned trees And here’s where we were heading at this point, towards yellow grasslands. By the time the view changed a lot, so this is how it looked after a while on the road, we’re getting near to Kings Canyon! We weren’t there yet but we got an idea where we were heading to the view on horizon was changing from hot yellow to cliffy rocks. When we took a closer look we were able to see that those mountains are different, every single one of them looked different. In the next few pictures I’d like…

#Devils #Punchbowl

#devil's punch bowl

You Remember my last post? When I was driving to the Desert? On my way back home I was like: I haven’t seen to much yet, almost desert only so I stopped at @Devils Punch Bowl. What I recognized first was: You have a marvelous view on the moon there 🙂 There was no lunar eclipse and from what I know you do not need to wear any special glasses to take a look at the moon, while the president doesn’t need some at all even if it’s a eclipse of the sun… I liked that little guide, he was showing me around the trail, very kind, and as you saw…

#bbq

First starting with some pictures from adelante trip, that didn’t make it to last weeks post, don’t know why. This looks to me like a buidling that collapsed, but to be honest I did not further investigate it and I have no idea what it is. Near the building I found a fridge, it was empty, at least from what I could see… but clearly when you have a BBQ in the desert you need to cool your beer and stuff right? While above is clear, someone had a barbeque and maybe shot the grill once it was finished, why the two tires are with the grill, that might be…

#Visit from #Austria @Fremont

#startingtobelate When I started google was telling me I’ll arrive arround 7pm so I called my colleague told him I’ll be in @Fremont arround 7pm. I did not think about the need to stop from time to time or have a breek to smoke a cigarett, grab some water, fuel the car… And I did not know that California had so many faces. Here’s one of them. When I arrived it was almost 9 pm. I had to stop more often than expected, after arround 2 hours the service light of „my“ Toyota Yaris iA was lighting up in orange, and I did not have any idea what the car…
