New Hawk Babies at the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve

I went over this morning and caught these two babies. There are apparently three this year. I could hear the other in the distance and the mother was close by. Also, there are supposed to be four new Great Horned Owl babies as well. Hopefully, I'll see them at some time in the future. The BMCP is a great place to bird watch while you're visiting. They have 'Bird Walks' every Saturday at 7 a.m. during the warm weather months and 8 a.m. in the fall.

Abstractions in Nature on the '955'

Took an early morning walk on the '955' following the 'Jim Barry Trail' and saw these 'abstractions in nature' using the pinhole camera. A piece of land well worth saving for posterity. An incredible resource.

The Rare Mariposa Lily Makes An Appearance

We were walking the '955' (a piece of land the Mojave Desert Land Trust is trying to save) the other day and found quite a few of these gems on our hike. Apparently there was enough rain in January for them to spring forth in all their glory, quite a treat.
