    Andrea, ever the tree hugger, is hugging my greandparent's oak tree. It's said to be at least 350 years old.

    I would need a widelux to get this tree in the frame.

    Here is the smallest mountain range in the world, the Sutter Buttes.

    Thanks, there are a bunch more family shots on my web site...if that's what you want to see. 60 years really is something to be admired.

    Photo gal, my grandparents live in Gridley, CA. That's about 60 miles north of Sacramento. My grandfather is quite well know in that area, he worked at and ran the Grey Lodge Wildlife area for 32 years and is a leading exert on the birds that migrate there. He also helped found Butte college and has the athletic grounds/stadium named for him.

    60 years, that is awesome. They look great. IMO, grandparents are the greatest gift we can have. My grandparents will have thier 69th in a couple weeks.

    Some nice shots with the 20D!!, and wow, a rental car with personalized plates, too cool. :thumbsup:

    Thanks,

    The stang did handle really well, of course I usually drive a 20 year old POS car with a worn out front end so It's hard to judge for sure. It sure ate up some tight radius on-ramps at high speed. It was fun to drive but really the best part is when you are outside looking at it.
