Of Coarsegold!

Did we make sure to stay again at the Park of the Sierras SKP park in Coarsegold, CA, when we came down coast last fall? Of course!

Since we arrived just minutes after the office closed, we boondocked in the big lot near the clubhouse…

…and moved to a rental site with hookups the next morning. For a big rig like this one, moving into sites like this one brings out Bob’s keen maneuvering skills!

The patio was a great spot for putting out our chairs to relax awhile. And, of course, the nearby hiking area was where we spent a good bit of time. Not only is the scenery gorgeous…

…but our chances of a critter encounter are pretty high, and we weren’t disappointed this time, either. We were gifted with visits by this snake, rabbit, and a pair of squirrels:

Of course, Ellen couldn’t keep her camera off the birds, managing to catch a few in her lens… If you have better identification for these, please let us know!

Northern Flickers:

A female Mountain Bluebird:

California Quail:

The ever-entertaining Acorn Woodpecker (unless it’s *your* wooden shed or tree they’ve decided to use as a storage bin for their winter food!):

And this pair of hawks, hunting together:

Sometimes, it’s just the way the setting sun settles through the trees that catches our eye.

Was it Yogi Berra who said, “You can see a lot just by looking”? Well, whoever said it was right. If you haven’t looked lately, then you ain’t seen nothin’.
