  Of so many photographs that I blog about, the Redwood Trees in California seen to get most the attention.     So I have taken a few of my older photos that I have loaded up over the past, just to show everyone how HUGE and beautiful these trees really are.     The photograph (above) I posted yesturday, but wanted to throw it out again for anyone that missed my other post.     The photo (above) was taken with a wideangle lens and that's why it is so distorted, (below) is a photo on the stats of this monster tree called Founders Tree.     I have been visiting and hiking around the Redwood Trees in Northern California for over 35 years nows.     And even to this day the Redwoods continue to amaze me ;o)

  Success one day at a Time - Lesson from a Farmer - Ferndale California    A young man from the city graduated from college with a degree in journalism and got a job at a small town newspaper.  One of his first assignments was to interview an old farmer who lived twenty miles outside of town. As he sat with the grizzled man on his front porch, the young journalist looked at his notepad and starting asking his questions. One of the first he asked was, "Sir, what time do you go to work in the morning?" The old farmer chuckled and replied, "Son, I don't go to work. I'm surrounded by it.?   We can learn a lesson from the old farmer. Opportunities are a lot like his work. They are everywhere. But the problem is that we often don't have the eyes to see them. As you approach each day, look a...

Trinidad California Coastline & Robert Vegas Bob Swetz      Trinidad California Coastline & Robert Vegas Bob Swetz 10-16-2014   It's been a long time since Robert Swetz aka "Vegas Bob" has spent time in Trinidad California. After spending 3 days hiking within the Redwood Trees, I decided to take a stroll down the coastline of Trinidad.     Going back and forth from Eureka to the Redwoods north of Orick, it is real easy to pass Trinidad because it is such a small town. And if you don't take the main exit, well ... you miss Trinidad all together.     Here are just a handful of photographs I took on my visit to Trinidad and for anyone that has never seen Trinidad, well ... if your in the are make sure you stop ;o)     Videos By Vegas Bob videosbyvegasbob.blogspot.com/       Sep 7, 2010 - R...

Higher Power guiding Robert Vegas Bob Swetz life 10-16-2014   Higher Power guiding Robert Vegas Bob Swetz life 10-16-2014   Most of Vegas Bob's life has been guiding by himself, and along the way have been some stumbling blocks. So for the last 2-3 weeks Robert has been refraining from making any decisions by himself.   Robert has been traveling, hiking along the beaches of the Pacific Coast in Northern California and for the last 3 days, hiking in the Redwoods. Robert (has not) received any direct messages from his "Higher Power" so he will continue to hike and bond with "Mother Nature" ;o)   Robert does have a feeling that his answers of (new) direction will be coming soon ...     HUGE Redwood Trees in Orick California by Robert (Vegas ... ► 2:05► 2:05 www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE4t4EF...
