4/20/21 Hi! thanks for coming to my website. Note: some of the slideshows are missing because Adobe discontinued their flash player program and most of my slide shows were made with this. I am in the process of creating new shows now which takes a bit of time, so if there is something missing you want to see, please come back again. :-)

Here is a Manzanita bush in full bloom on the path
