The last pic I ever snapped from Tripp was of the Laguna Blanca area of Hope Ranch on a smoky and hazy day, that for me evokes the mist of memory.

As weather finally began to hint at drought relief, from a safe distance we enjoyed the look of clouds beyond the Santa Ynez Mountains.

It’s nice having the long zoom lens of the Sony RX-10m4 for pix like these.

A few days later we enjoyed this somehow rakish view of Lake Cachuma.
