Lots and Lots and Lots of Deer, 09-15-18

OMG it was soooo beautiful outside today I could hardly believe it: around 53º when I got up around 6:30 am, and never made it past 77º by the afternoon. Breezy, sunny… just gorgeous!

A Short Fungus Walk in the Fog, 01-07-18

I went out to the American River Bend Park hoping to find some fungi coming out for the season.  I didn’t get to see a lot of anything, though.  There weren’t many different kinds of mushrooms out yet, and the fog was keeping all of the birds and critters in bed. I didn’t hear or […]

A Walk Before the Rain on Wednesday

After work, it wasn’t raining – a little bit of angel spit, but no downpours yet – so I took the dog over to the WPA Rock Garden and duck pond for a short walk. Again there were no spectacular photo ops, but I did get to get a few close-ups of a female Carpenter […]

Found Some Elfin Saddles in the Rain

I got up a little after 7:00 this morning and headed out to the American River Pend Park.  It was overcast and sprinkling very lightly when I got there, and just as I drove down the entry road, a hawk in a tree caught my eye.  So I pulled over and walked into a part […]

No BBQ, so I Walked in the Rain

I got up at 6:00 am – feeling almost wholly well except for a lack of sleep — did my ablutions stuff and then headed out to Woodland to pack up for the “Thank You” BBQ Tuleyome was going to be holding at Lake Solano Park today… and it was pouring down rain all the […]
