On the Side of the Road

The other day, my friend and I drove through a rural part of the San Francisco Bay Area.
This lonely gnarled tree on the hillside caught my eyes.


Later, we caught this cow sleeping under a tree. If you click on the picture for a closer look, you can see he/she has its eyes closed with what looks like a smile on its face. Happy cows do come from California like the commercial says. Although, it is sad to see markings on his/her hide.


On this stretch of the road, we saw a turkey scurry away just as we drove by.

You are choosing a wild life theme at the moment. Very impressive and congradulated for good work

Time for me to revisit a wild life park myself :)

Great shots Karen and I love that gnarled tree. There definitely is a poem or story there.

Somehow that tree gave me the impression of being the most lonely. Perhaps it can't move?

The cow does kinda look to be smiling. lol. Maybe she was dreaming of having her picture taken.
The tree looks strange there all by itself.
