After the slightly dreary Across pictures, it’s time to have a look at the other side of Across. The Pogonip is a wooded area adjacent to the University of Santa Cruz.
The word appears to come from a native American language and signifies dense, frozen fog. The pictures here were taken at an evening walk, after the long drive across.
The ground is characteristically covered with Redwood needles. This is not southern Indiana anymore.
Only the occasional maple leaves remind us of the existence of changing seasons and places.
Then there are special places, like the Rock Garden, or the Lichen Tree.
Now the fog can come.
