Comments: Police encounters


We climbed up a sandly slope and had a good view of our surroundings. In an arroyo to our left Esme spotted a rabbit. We kept looking for an easy way to walk in western direction. After several minutes we noticed a police car standing on a ridge in the distance. We didn't give it much thought, and kept exploring our surroundings.

That was fun to read, and it made me want to go shoot some photos of my own! Thanks for posting about your experience. I live in northern California, and one of the coolest things I've seen here is the Jerusalem Cricket, which I heard is called "niņa de la tierra" in Spanish. It was a fun/creepy experience to see that its young looked like long, thin, wriggly black worms.

Anyway, cool post. :)

@Marc - I do encounter Jerusalem Cricket now and then as well, see for example The trip to the lava field which shows a very beautiful colored species.

Thanks for reading.
