I woke up around 6:00 this morning, and was out the door with the dog a few minutes later. We went over to the American River Bend Park for a walk. First, though, I stopped and put gas in the car. There wasn’t a lot to see at the park today, but the walk was nice and the temperature was perfect (around 51°) so it was nice. Saw some jack rabbits and woodpeckers… and the lace lichen was especially pretty today. I also got a fairly good shot of a Northern Flicker. The dog and I walked for about 2 hours and then headed back to the car.
