Los Osos Oaks State Reserve

To view these stereo pairs in 3-D without glasses:

1) Click on image to enlarge.

2) View the stereo pair straight on and from a distance of about 1.5 to 2-feet from your screen.

3) Cross or converge your eyes a bit until you see three virtual images. [NOTE: If you don't cross or converge enough, you will only see two images. If you cross too much, you might see four images.]

4) With all three images in your line of sight, stare at the center image. It will be in 3-D. If at first you don't succeed, be patient and try again. The results are well worth the effort.

Here are the same views in the anaglyph format...

For best results, view under subdued lighting with a pair of red/cyan-tinted 3-D anaglyph glasses.

The Los Osos Oaks State Reserve is located along Los Osos Valley Road about 1/2-mile west of the center of Los Osos, California. There are a number of websites explaining this 90-acre gem. Google "Los Osos Oaks Reserve" and you'll have plenty to pick from.

A month or so back I had an up close and personal with a Bobcat in the far back reaches of the oak forest. He (she?) was lazin' about on a limb just ten-feet off the ground on one of those big old oaks when we met. I said, "Hey. How ya doin?'" He stood up from a reclining position, stretched, and yawned for a full ten seconds. I must have awoken him from a nap. We exchanged friendly glances for over two minutes before he slowly climbed down and sauntered off into the underbrush.

The boardwalk (above) passes over a small wetland. The diversity of plant life over the 90-acre reserve is quite astonishing. When and if you go there, keep an eye out for poison oak. It's everywhere. Sightings of deer, rabbit, monarch butterflies, dragon flies, owls, and all sorts of bird life are common. Enjoy!
