We weren’t lost, we found the exact parking lot, went down to the trail head, but couldn’t find the Old Salmon Falls Trail. This trail was supposed to be flat and a 2 mile loop. Yes, I could do that. However, we ended up walking about ½ mile up and came back down. But, what landscapes there were to be shot!
We think the trail was under water now that Folsom Lake is full. One photographer suggested that we didn’t drive far enough to find the correct trail. It all comes down to the fact that we were lost, didn’t find the right trail, but had a great time roaming around Folsom Lake.
After our lake shoot we did our usual out to lunch routine and then on to walk Old Folsom. This part will be in the next post.
What did I learn? I dabbled a little in the Nik software I downloaded (Silver Efex and Color Efex). I am now a Nik fan. What fun! I’m also getting better results in Lightroom. Remember, this is the year for learning to use the software programs I have. I’ll admit that due to personal stuff, I haven’t been as diligent as I want, but that’s life. However, my commitment is still there.
The moral to today’s story is never give up. I’ll learn the software; and when we get lost, we find wonderful landscapes to shoot and have lots of fun.

Beautiful photos!!!!!! Make me want to go to the mountains!!! But in Ireland they aren’t so green yet…. hehehe… and it’s cooold!!!
Thanks Mercedes, our mountains are still cold and we’re still experiencing snow up there. We need a good snow pack with so many drought years.
Where is Folsom Lake? It looks like a lovely place.
Sherry, Folsom Lake is in the southeastern area of Sacramento County. It’s a major reservoir here. Good to see it full!

On my bucket list.
Anne – what a nice series! Here in SoCal, the hills are green and calling, and the rain is falling, and a slice of heaven is at hand. Keep up the getting lost – it’s so much fun (as long as you follow your trail of crumbs out, you will be safe).
Thanks N, my crumbs are a GPS!
