The other day I was walking around in Upper Bidwell Park admiring the beautiful, lush environment and for a moment, I felt as though I was transported into a postcard. The vast expanse of green grass sprinkled with endless wildflowers, and the rocky buttes peeking through the green shroud of foliage, it was breathtaking!
Knowing that we only get to enjoy this spring gift for a very short time, I decided to try and capture what I saw. I spent the day with my video camera capturing the beauty of Upper Park in the Spring.
Once the sun went down, my friend Cameron and I set up a camera in front of Monkey Face to do a time lapse video and see the amazing star display. Thanks to the security guard who didn't kick us out until 2AM, we were able to capture the Monkey Face at night as he watches over the park with thousands of stars spinning above his head. The result was magical!
I hope you enjoy this small piece of Upper Bidwell Park, one of Chico's biggest source of pride.
