Water from a recent storm cascades over the edge of the Waimea Canyon. I love how green everything is there. It is definitely one of the prettiest places I have ever been.
This little one is a juvenile sculpin. Sculpin are prevalent along the pacific coast. The juveniles can be quite well camouflaged with the sand and small rocks even while sporting bright blue spots.
I have a soft spot in my heart for the gentle, rolling tawny hills of central California. With a clear blue sky, I think they are quit iconic.
