Mendo in May …

Had a chance to head up to the Mendocino National forest for three nights, one of my favorite places in the world …

The weather was variable … 🙂

Heading south on M1 near M61 … maybe four inches of snow in an hour …

Looking north on M1 toward Covelo …

Snow on Mendocino Pass … Schnitzel and I had to turn around in 6″ of snow …

Trying to stay dry in the rain before it turned to snow … I carry this collapsible umbrella mainly for shade in the desert, buy it came in handy yesterday …

Campfire …

Better campfire pic … my pal Leo taught me the trick to take your campfire pic during the morning or evening while the light is good, instead of in the dark …

I met my motorcycle buddy Shawn Campbell and some of the Funduro guys at Deer Valley, and snapped these pics from High Glade on the way home today … we got drenched in Santa Rosa …

All I can say after all the weather this trip is that Schnitzel is a tough, happy, game puppy … and good company on a trip when Cary can’t
come along … 🙂

  1. Beautiful pics ….. And your riding companion is a natural 😀

  2. As always, I’m impressed with the photos, and with the cute dog, Schnitzel. How great to get above the clouds and take advantage of the light and clouds, and the optical effects that can be found there.

  3. Dad- he really is! Who knew he would be such a great moto puppy?!

  4. Hi Dad,
    Glad you enjoy the pics from the I-phone Cary purchased for me just after we got married. Like the old Pentax K-1000 you got for me so many years ago, I’ve always enjoyed the way a picture can help me connect with other people … glad to hear my snap-shots are improving! 🙂
    Just remembering all the cool slides you took with your camera over the years …
    Lots of love,
    — John

  5. Hi David,
    Cary trained Schnitzel well, plus she did pick a natural … 🙂
    Hope you are enjoying Morocco, please give everyone there a hug for us …
    See you soon,
    — John A
