personality rock...


on the way to the highway from the willow springs race way. we stopped by here last year and i remember it was right at the closing time and the gate closed in front of us.

レース・トラックからハイウェイに出る途中にあるネコ科の動物保護センター。去年寄った時はちょうど閉園時間で、目の前でゲートが閉まったんだった。

 the gate was open this year.

今年はゲートが開いてる。
 




thinking about how and why they ended up being here in the cage (and probably they were in the cage before they were rescued) is heart wrenching...these birds were flying back and forth between inside and outside the cages.

一体何がどうなって彼らはここで保護されることになったのか。保護される前も保護されてからもずっと檻の中。檻の中に閉じ込められるのは悪いことした人じゃなかったの?鳥たちは檻の中も外も自由に行ったり来たりしていた。色々考えさせられた。

just like last year, the abandoned houses were there right out side of the conservation center.

去年も撮った廃墟の集団の今年バージョン・・・は保護センターを出るとすぐの所にある。


then we took highway 14 and realized that there were so many exits named "something canyon" or "something canyon road" so we decided to take one and check the canyon out.

さて、気を取り直してハイウェイ14番でアズサに戻る途中。やけに降り口の名前にキャニオンが付いている。「なんとかキャニオン」とか「なんとかキャニオン・ロード」など。で、キャニオンと聞いちゃ血の騒ぐ我々は、てきとうに降りてアウェイの渓谷をチェックしてみることに。

and we saw the sign said "vasquez rocks park" so we stopped by. WOW shinya just kept climbing.

降りたら偶然ヴァスケス・ロックス公園というサインがあったので、行ってみた。すごい!変な形の巨大な岩がわんさか!ずんずん登って行く木村氏。

suddenly he turned and came down. yup, he's scared of heights :D

突然引き返す木村氏。この必要以上なビビりよう。高い所が苦手なのを忘れていたらしい。



 he found a different route :)

懲りずにまた登り始める木村氏。

 taking a nap :)

秘密基地発見!



 found a hole in a rock.

岩穴発見!
 
 still climbing...

まだ登ってる・・・
 
:D there is really a lot to learn about california.

カリフォルニア、まだまだ奥が深いな。ここは今度はN美氏も誘ってオートバイで来たい場所。

You know in the future a man named Captain James T. Kirk will climb the same rocks that Shinya and you have climbed?

As an addition if I may . A damn fine article on HFL about Shinya just appeared over that a way . More than worth the read IMO !

A request ? Please add to and update the Works M/C photos if you would ...
