Hi, I'm Michael Hurder!

My sight lives here

Uvas Canyon County Park
I read about this place online. I was looking for something new to shoot. Waterfalls!!! Yes, waterfalls. I was sooooo there. Unfortunately, this hasn't been the best year for rainfall, so not a lot of water. Still, this was an invigorating hike through the lower part of the Santa Cruz Range. 2.8 miles and a lot of uphill, about a 500 foot gain in elevation to 2500'. This could have been the proof that we walked to school uphill both ways. Phew! The falls weren't spectacular but picturesque just the same. I'll put this one in the file cabinet for later use when the rains come down.

In search of Eagles
I searched on line for a good place in my area to find eagles in the February/March timeframe. Google told me to head up to the Lower Klamath and Tule Lakes region in Northern California, just south of the Oregon border. Searching the net for a strategic place to base out of, I found Merrill, Oregon to be close enough to all the areas I wanted to search in, and have lodgings. I stayed in the Wild Goose Lodge Motel, a no frills small town facility with everything I needed and at a reasonable rate. No place I visited was more than 20 miles from the Motel. A perfect beginning.
