2012-09-08 Equestrians at Border Field

I headed south on a Saturday morning to the beach at Border Field. One cannot go further south along the Pacific Coast unless one wants to go into Mexico. When I reached the beach, I took a left turn and rode south to the border fence and visited the terns, gulls and shorebirds loafing on … Read more

2013-08-23 J-Street & Border Field

Two locations well worth visiting any time I’m in South San Diego Bay region are J-Street by Chula Vista’s Bayfront Park, and Border Field near the Mexican border. I spent several enjoyable hours at both these locations. I also made a stop at the Refuge Headquarters at the Tijuana Slough to visit my friend Brian … Read more

2013-05-11 Tijuana River Mouth

With every visit I make to the Tijuana River Mouth I’m rewarded with a sense of renewal. Fresh air blown over the waves of the Pacific Ocean, sun and sand all around … Just thinking about it now, I’m uplifted by the memories. This particular Saturday was no exception. As with many of my trips … Read more

2013-04-04 Border Field And The Tijuana River Mouth

Weekday visits to Border Field, at the extreme southwestern corner of the USA, requires a long walk. It is over a mile from the parking area to the sandy beach, and another ¾ mile north along the beach to reach the Tijuana River Mouth. I use a specially equipped fat-tire electric bicycle to transport myself … Read more

It’s a long walk from the designated parking area a few yards from the border with Mexico (hence the name “Border Field”) to reach the beach where the USA and Mexico meet the Pacific Ocean. I use a bicycle with 8” wide tires to carry me and my camera gear the mile or so down … Read more

2017-09-12 Crescent City California And The Klamath River Mouth

I  drove south to Crescent City Monday afternoon and scouted the harbor for bird possibilities. The light from the west swayed me from any inclination to take photographs. Tuesday morning promised to be better, so I used the remainder of the day to finish blogging about Gold Beach. Crescent City is rather vigilant about overnight … Read more

2017-08-11 Salton Sea Sunsets

Choosing to add a few more “features” to my RV delayed the launch of my expedition into the inter-mountain west. I might have taken Interstate 15 on my way to Salt Lake, as that would have been the preferred track of my guidance system, but a reported a one hour traffic delay only 50 miles … Read more

2015-08-05 Saltworks

Having spent way too much time of late at the computer rebuilding my website, it was important that I get out to the field. Since Wednesday was a Saltworks day, I requested permission to join the team for a tour. Unlike last month’s tour, on this day the team consisted of three; Brian, Robert and … Read more
