This week, I am preparing to go on a road trip. After dropping off my car for service at Auto-Tec located in Campbell, CA, I discovered some of my fine feathered friends on a road trip of their own. On my 4.5 mile hike home, I decided to take digital photos along the way. The photo on the right definitely captures the drought on the West Coast. I typically hike 15 miles a week plugged-in, but at times silence is golden.
