Lake Calero

Tuesday afternoon brought Lake Calero the best of a winter day here – chilly breezes (temperatures in the 40s!), piles of clouds dragged across the sky, warm yellow sunshine, and a gull wheeling overhead. (Click to enlarge photo) Read more » about A winter afternoon on Lake Calero

Otters

Paul Anderson does it again. Our neighborhood nature photog brings back a collection of sunrise photos of a family of otters, including the first shot below, which shows four of them gathered on a log at Lake Clementia, faces into their fur, grooming themselves. All told, there were five in the group, Paul says. And guess what? We live here. (Click for larger images)

We Live Here: Our eagles, then and now

Bald eagle

Honored photographer (and neighbor) Paul Anderson shares a recent landing shot of one of our bald eagles, as remarkable an eagle shot as we've published. The bald eagles are certainly one of the glories of life in Rancho Murieta. Click the photo to see it larger, and realize its full quality, and then click this link to see what we believe were the first eagle photos published at RanchoMurieta.com, in 2007-08. Camera technology has advanced quite a bit in the last 11 years – and of course Paul's quite a photographer – but it's one of those night/day differences, as you'll see. (Click for larger image) Read more » about We Live Here: Our eagles, then and now

We Live Here: The wooden bridge

Pedestrian bridge

When it opened in 2007, everyone thought it was pretty, but probably no one thought the community’s wooden bridge would become the Rancho Murieta icon it is today.  The 410 feet of weathering wood and supports underneath, with their river rock designs, capture something essential about our community. It’s striking when you stand alongside, when you view it from the air or when you walk across. How it came to be is quite a story, too long for this space, but you can read it here.

A new season, announced silently

| Filed under

Autumn slips over Rancho Murieta gently, with shorter days and chilly nights and turning the leaves of one tree, then another, and another. Sunday afternoon, as sunset cast our bridge in gold, a lone tree was proof enough that a new season is on its way. (Click for larger image.) Read more » about A new season, announced silently
