Eye of the Storm

from the desk of Ranger Chuck

Winter storms bring much needed rain.  But does it have to happen all at once?  Last night the thunder at 1:26 in the am was like surround-sound.  The volume much to high.  The whole house shook.  But inbetween waves and waves of showers comes the calm: the eye of the storm when we can relax before the next wave hits.

Point Lobos Foundation Introduction

Ozzy the Osprey

Chuck Bancroft, State Park Ranger

On Saturday afternoon November 11th, I was walking the Carmelo Meadow Trail.  Yes, I walk trails even on my days off.  Camera in hand, I was looking for Ozzy the Osprey.  First seen by Lifeguard Kevin Brady two years ago this coming January, Ozzy has been a regular at the Reserve and over at the restoration area at Odello West, part of Carmel River State Beach.  I can just hear Ozzy thinking.

"Let's see, steelhead or rock fish.  What would I like for lunch today."
