Notice the snow-capped Sierras in the background. 

No (man-made) waterfall today . . . 

Quite vocal this little birdie was. 

  There was logging going on in the park today. 

An old chimney.

Yep. The trail goes under the tree . . .  hope those branches hold up!

Trail blocked. Bummer! We had to backtrack and make our way up to the road.
