Carrizo Plain

Postby Windwalker » Tue Feb 21, 2006 12:06 pm

Spent the day in Carizzo Plain National Monument

Soda Lake, Temblor Range and the San Andreas fault is over there too.

Painted Rock, a Native American pictograph site.

All around Painted Rock were these little bunnies...I have never seen so many bunnies, they were literally everywhere.

Nice shots! I was there last spring during wildflower season and that place is awesome! I want to kayak Soda Lake, it would be a cool experience!

Hey, that's the perfect logo for you! If the place is crazy with wildflowers again this spring, wanna try and meet up down there for some photography? I wanna kayak Soda Lake during wildflower season, make it a combo trip so maybe a magazine might print something up on it.

WW, thats an awesome logo (and your other images are great). I'd love to head on down there during the wildflower bloom this spring too, as long as I'm not chased down by a pot farmer again :paranoid: If you guys head down there, I'd love to tag along if possible. Maybe learn some photography from the you guys

Let's do it! Let's hope for another banner wildflower year there! Trailblazer, that'd be great to have you there! Windwalker, the more I look at that logo shot of yours, the more I absolutely love it! That is so incredible!

Man, those are awesome shots! I live about an hour from there. The best wildflowers in the area are about 20 minutes further west on highway 58 at a place called Shell Creek. Here are some relatively close up shots of a field that is this thick for acres and acres! I am sure you guys can get some great shots...I am a rank amateur when it comes to flowers.

WW, great images, Carrizo Plains is an amazing place. Looks like you’ve found the Magic Hawk, that’s a powerful image - perfect for you.

Awesome logo! You're right. The photo doesn't look real. Mountaineer, What a riot of color. Looks like anything in focus in that stuff would be nice. Could be wrong, but that bunnie looks like a young black tail jack. jls
