Ben Hur Rd

Jun 22 2011    

This is one of my favorite roads.
We were lucky to end up on it coming back from Yosemite.
It starts in pine forest, transitions to oak woodlands, and ends in golden grassy hills.
We were on it for about an hour.
Saw two cars.

Dad whittling a pencil to log a bird in field guide.

We saw birds, cows, grasshoppers… and a wild boar!
The boar was on the road and just ran in front of the car for a while before diving off under a fence (while I was reaching for a camera).

While we were on this road we were nearing Madera, where artist Lori-D grew up.
I was remembering this painting of hers…

When we happened onto this ranch!
