In the out-of-bounds of the Merced Hills Golf Club.

There are t'ree boidies* in dis pic. Find 'em and you win one of the errant balls that I hawked the other day.

*3 birds yields 3-under-par, of course--where you want to be after the long thirteenth hole.

Trees make golf into a non-links experience; and because of them, the "game" can become a major nightmare because of them.

Same with climbing...

Forgive me, it's Sunday, golf day in America.

That's brilliant, seamstress. The tree looks like one of its leaves.

Now, that's obviously a species you don't find on the Sierra Nevada's western slope!

Not much more to be said about this falling woody object.

Mouse, I almost had to perform an Auto-Heimlich I was laughing so hard!
At first I figgered the cars were the target, but NO! It was obvious from
the git-go his undercut was all wrong, not to mention his going all northwoods
heman with the axe. PRICELESS!

That felt good. Too bad it didn't fall on that moron as well.
Why cut down that beautiful tree? So sad. Maybe the tree was sick? Looked healthy from the distance.

Speaking of history........
I took this photo on Sunday in the Sutter Buttes. A friend is at the base of this Valley Oak growing in a corral built by General John C. Fremont in 1849. He camped out here for ten days gathering troops and munitions before continuing on to overtake Sonoma and seize California from Mexico (aka The Bear Flag Uprising).

We had permission from the land owner to hike here.
