Edward and I went on a photo trip at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Edward found it online. To get there, you drive though a residential neighborhood near Sacramento, CA. The narrow street suddenly opens up to a large open nature area. It’s a short drive through the middle of a golf course to the nature center. Parking is $5. The building is only open on the weekends, but the nature area is always open. We took some of the trails from the nature center down to the river.
We spent spent a couple of hours on the trails, mostly chasing butterflies. It was windy and the butterflies were moving too fast to get any clear shots of them. The wind didn’t get in the way of taking pictures of the sculptures near the center, though. I used Bot, my 3D printed figurine, as a photography model for a few shots. Then, a squirrel came to eat some grass near us. I got a shot of a squirrel. It was a relaxing trip.
