Starry Nights at Romero Pools (in daylight)

I joined friends Gregg & Pat for a roughly six mile hike up the Romero Canyon Trail in Catalina State Park today. A very nice day out -- wildflowers starting to bloom and pretty good water flows in the canyons from snow melt up higher in the Santa Catalinas.

I saw two things at Romero Pools today that reminded me of Van Gogh's Starry Night painting: one was some swirling stream scum in an eddy, the other was a very cool piece of old dead wood that Pat found lodged in the crack of a rock (perhaps a tree root?).


  1. Love the scum! I always enjoy when people can see something that is normally considered "ugly" and present it in a way that is beautiful.

  2. the knotted up wood is a beaut.


Comments are always appreciated, they let me know if anyone is actually reading my blog too!
