We had a real hard rain last night for most of the night. That meant the creek came up a bit and this old bridge bulkhead I fixed last summer got washed out a bit. I just need to find the hole in the bottom and put some bigger rocks in it, eventually.
I have four trail cams setup around the forest. Today, I decided to move them all to new spots. I set the first one up on this tree on the left to watch this road that comes down into our old orchard.
I had to ride around a bit to pick the rest of the trail cams up but first I went up to have look at the waterfall. I parked the bike here and walked the short distance to the fall.
The fall was flowing pretty good. I checked it out and moved on to pickup another trail cam to move.
I stopped at this spot, the Guerneville overlook.
That’s the small town of Guerneville down there. The haze is just moisture in the air. There’s a river down there that you can’t see that floods a lot, but I don’t think it flooded yet this year.
I stopped at our small pond to pick up a camera on the big tree on the left.
I was going along this road, but ran into this downed tree that just fell over.
I decided to do a bit of work on a trail to get some exercise. I spent a bit of time at the overlook before I got to work on the trail. I did get a couple showers from those dark clouds.
I walked out the trail to do a bit of work.
I quit before dark as I still had two more trail cams to put out, so walked back on the trail to the overlook, or break area.
I made it to the break area or overlook for a break.
The sun was headed down behind the hills to the west.
On the way home, I stopped in two places to setup two more trail cams.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
