We reached arch rock and took in the splendor of the pacific.
Bird. Rock. Plant. Ocean.
Taken from below, looking through the namesake arch where the previous shots were taken.
Here, you can see how the erosion of this small stream opened a small hole in the rock that was subsequently morphed by the powerful ocean waters into the large arch found today.
Emily's Saluki was wet and filthy.
Sunset, while climbing up Fairfax-Bolinas.
We watched it pass as we ate an early dinner in preparation for the climb.
Taken while cooking the main course later that night, at our stealthy campsite.
If you look to the bottom and middle thirds of this image, you'll make out a small meteor-looking flash. Close up, it is symmetrical, which betrays its being a satellite flare. I didn't see this until I reviewed the photo. It was totally unexpected. We also didn't expect to see the eclipse of the moon by an overhead plane (unfortunately, I was not quick enough to the camera to catch that remarkable sight).
Emily cooking (and holding still).
The view just outside the tent.
The near-full moon was bright.
The view inside the tent. Red lamp for reading refracting across the inside of tent mesh, white moonlight refracting across the outside, cosmos outside.
