It was a very cold winter day in Gilroy but how cold could it really be since Gilroy is in California the sunshire state. Well when I started at 9:00am it was 39 degrees and when I finished at 11:30am it was yes 39 degrees, breezy and sprinkling. I think it was to cold for the birds to be out but I did get a few good shots of an American Kestrel, a distance shot of a Red Tailed Hawk, a bunch of deer and some cool, no pun intended, landscape shots. The landscape pictures were with Penny's xmas present a Panasonic DMC-ZS19 pocket camera that packs in 14 Megapixels, pretty cool.
My hike was at Harvey Bear Ranch from the Roop Road parking lot. I walked out around Mummy mountain and then up and over Mummy mountain and then back down the northside. Besides being a little bit cold was as nice hike.
A few friends have been asking about my camera sling strap that is attached to my pack so I have included a few photos of my pack with the camera attached.
