Down by the Salinas Riverside between the Storms

Salinas River Flows into Access Path from Lawrence Moore Park, Paso Robles

Walk with me along the Salinas River after today’s storm and see how full it’s become. You will be amazed if you haven’t seen it lately. I walked along the Salinas River Trail in Lawrence Moore Park in Paso Robles, observing the current of the overflowing river , the broken tree branches, and the cloud formations in the blue sky.

Finally we drove south again to capture the elephant seals with my cameras.
