Artist's Description

When I see photographs I took of the lush beauty surrounding the entire Big Sur area, I dread finding what may be there after the firestorms of this last week. Already, miles of forest have been lost yet again and losing the historic structures as well would be tragic.

Anyway, this is the river I was told to walk across to get to the place where the sea gull didn’t want to step in the kelp and the man was sleeping on the log. :-) I asked how deep the water was and the young woman at the guard’s station said I’d just need to roll my pants. Not. And have you walked across river rocks that weren’t even and completely smooth while being watched by your guide and a half dozen other people? I’m a nudist but I don’t do ‘barefoot on rocks’ well. My camera was out, my backpack was strapped on, and I was carrying my shoes and socks while twirling and teetering, swearing and laughing my way across the 30 feet or so. Thankfully, the rocks hurt enough that I didn’t realize how cold the water was until I tried to find my toes to poke into my socks on the other side. Had I been aware that I was stepping into liquid ice, I might have just stepped back out and said, “Bite me.”

The one saving grace was that I didn’t fall, even tho the crow in front of me looked like he would laugh his fool beak off if I did. This was the only way to get to Creamery Meadow and now if it’s gone with its vistas and ladybugs, I will grieve bitterly.
