The Sundial Bridge in Redding, California crosses the Sacramento River while also providing the correct time one day a year (the Summer Solstice) assuming it's a sunny day (a pretty safe assumption for Redding).

A four mile, 1,400 foot hike into the Santa Cruz Mountains from just above Woodside. The trail is almost entirely under canopy but with a lot of variety and the occasional snatch of a view of the bay as you climb. The Bear Gulch section is very steep in places, if I did this route again I'd try Marker 3 to Marker 11 to see if the descent is more forgiving. Oh, and make sure you have a map or a downloaded route, there are a lot of trails with multiple entrances so it would be pretty easy to get lost here.

Hike starts at: 37.424658, -122.281739. View in Google Earth.

Visualizing Coronavirus Deaths by Country (Daily Incremental)

Catfood Earth has been missing a detailed guide since I shut down the Catfood Software web site. That has been fixed with this somewhat epic post which covers every feature of the Windows and Android versions.

Two new timelapses: stars over Columbia State Historic Park and another sunset. I also started working on a longer term project, it will be a few weeks until I get to see if it's going to work.

Hike posts have been upgraded with route maps and a chart showing elevation profile.

Also, some egrets and a ship.

Stars over Columbia State Historic Park

Updated on Saturday, February 19, 2022

Stars over Columbia State Historic Park

Timelapse of stars over Columbia State Historic Park in California.

The video has four sequences shot over two nights. It was a challenging weekend right before the Summer Solstice with a pretty bright moon, but there are some hints of milky way in there. The first and third clips are from a Sony A7C with 20mm f1.8 G lens. The second and fourth are from a GoPro Hero 8 Black which suffered from a few stuck pixels but nice enough overall. Post processed in Lightroom, LRTimelapse, Resolve and Filmstro Pro.
