Monday January 5, 2015 Jenner CA.
Just as I put my boat in the water today, Ray pulled in, in his truck, so I waited for him to get his boat in the water.
It was a bit on the chilly side today with a light wind, maybe about forty degrees F. with some clouds in the sky blocking the much needed sun.
Deer on the island
We tried to get some sun in this spot for awhile, but it wasn’t going to happen, so we headed on up the river on the south side.
A walk at Eagle’s Landing
We paddled up river a little ways to the eagle’s landing area where we decided to go for a walk up the hill, thinking the walk might warm us up a bit.
This area has a a lot of poison oak in it, like most of the places around here, but Ray and I don’t catch the stuff.
Resting turkey vulture
We checked on the way back and it was gone.
Willow tree patch
I wanted to check out a willow tree patch on the side of the hill to see if there was a water spring in it.
We’ll have to come back some time and look around some more, as it’s an area that looked like animals bedded down under the trees in this spot.
The sun came out a little while we were up there, but the day never did warm up very well.
I headed for Goat Rock
We took our boats out and Ray took off for home,but I headed on over to Goat Rock as I hadn’t driven over that way for a long time and I wanted to check the area out.
Checked out the cleared Monte Rio boat ramp
Ray had said the ramp was cleared at Monte Rio, so I stopped there to check it out. I heard some guys had shoveled it out, which is good as there was more mud there than and older fella like me could deal with. Thanks guys.
I went on home from there and hit the couch for a much needed nap. That walk up the hill wore me out.
