Sunday at the Zoo 
(M)(L)Skipper I took a little trip to the Lincoln Children's Zoo this weekend and got some photos. Here are a few of the better ones.
Two days in Banff 
(M)(L)Water at Lake Minnewanka After Calgary, we stayed a few days in Banff, using it as a base of operations to conduct light hikes and picnicking in the national park. Locations visited included Cascade Pond, Two Jack Lake, Lake Minnewanka, Lake Louise, and Moraine Lake.
Canada: Calgary 
(M)(L)Dragonfly (Inglewood Bird Sanctuary) In Calgary, we went to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and the Calgary Zoo.
California: Odds and Ends 
(M)(L)Lizard at Point Lobos It's a bit of a jumble, but here are the highlights from the rest of my California photos. These are from all over the trip, including: one from Mendocino, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Point Lobos, Sunset and Moonrise in Monterey, and one from the Golden Gate Park Arboretum.
Elkhorn Slough Boat Tour 
(M)(L)Sea otter chows down while sea gull hopes for leftovers On our way back from Monterey to San Francisco, we rode a pontoon boat on the Elkhorn Slough near Moss Landing (named for Mr. Moss, not the plant). This provided the trip's best opportunity to get close to seals, sea lions, and sea otters.
Monterey Bay Aquarium - Jellyfish
