I've recently started volunteering with the San Diego River Park Foundation and have been taking pictures of the work that's being done to restore the headwaters habitat as well as the gorgeous environment itself. The Headwaters Habitat Restoration Project seeks not only to improve the current condition of the area but also to foster change that will help ensure a healthy habitat and good water quality for years to come. It is a great way to spend a Saturday morning and I hope to go to many more!
There are already plenty of kitten pictures on the internet but I managed to add a few more! The thing is, they never get old, no matter how many I see. Kittens are funny and adorable! Although I had some great subjects, my favorite captures were of mom grooming one of her kittens. Sometimes the kitten responded with playful wrestling but there were also moments when it nestled close to mom and let her keep it safe and clean. All of the photos in this set were taken at the fun, educational, and beautiful Fort Cross in Santa Ysabel, California (near Julian). They have activities for kids of all ages including hayrides, fairy garden making, panning for gold, and a petting zoo.
