Oops! Sorry, our hills are just as brown as yours. That shot was taken in the spring.

Here is a little closer look at Big Chico Creek in the upper park area of the canyon. Also taken in the spring.

thanks for the clarification, that makes me feel better - I was jealous of your green. I'm already tired of brown and am looking forward to winter's arrival.

Yes, we are in full blown brown here as well.

This shot of a portion of a Chinese rock wall was taken a few days ago in 100F plus heat. Look familiar?

Outstanding! Beautiful! Spectacular!

Bidwell Park, eh? I must add that to my list of "must-sees".

Thank you Cal, if you drink beer you can add the Sierra Nevada brewery to your list. It's in Chico too and they have an excellent pub/restaurant at the brewery.

Cheers

Hi Steve

I really love the capture of the 'summer heat feel' that you've shared in these.

Though I've not been to any part of the Americas, I've heard (& seen) from quite a few instances that California is quite similar to some parts of Australia - and again your photos display that.

I particularly like both photos of the Big Chico creek... makes me want to go 'bush-walking' in that area.

Hope you'll get reprieve from the heat.

Paul

Thanks Paul,
I love California because you can find almost any climatic zone that be can be found on the planet. Forrest, desert, beach, glacial, and just about everything in between. As a young boy my friends and I would go walkabout in Bidwell park everyday of the summer. What great times.
