The Wednesday Hiking – The Camera of the Mind

Not much happening the shop as the colder weather settles in and Christmas activities start.  On Sunday we went to the Church of the Hiking Trail for our weekly devotional.

We did decide not to take any photos as this was a spiritual, creative breathing in exercise.  It was a great day to be out, clear, cold and not many people on the trail.  While we didn’t take any pictures on Sunday, I did find one in my archives of the same place on a similar day in drier weather:

Borel Hill on Russian Ridge.

If you need me – I am writing the annual Christmas letter.

  1. Some of my very fond memories were tromping through the Southern California outback with my daughter, searching for evidence of the San Andreas Fault among the native plants–a science project she was doing for high school. Nature at its best.

    Russian Ridge? Has there been some major military incident you’re all keeping quiet?


    • Yup, in 1812, Russians established a presence in California center at Ft. Ross north of San Francisco. They abandoned the fort around 1842 and in the late 1800s the US bought the Alaska territory from Russia for a few million dollars. As far as I know, this outpost was a trading post and there were now military engagements, but we’ve had a sizable Russian community here in the San Francisco bay area ever since.
