Ray and John join me today
Ray said he’d meet me at Jenner this morning. He was at the ramp as I drove in and put my boat in the water. He said his brother John was coming down too, so we waited a bit in our boats out in front of the boat ramp for a bit for John to show up and he did shortly.
Let’s go for a hike up to the rock
We paddled across the river to Penny Island and decided to go up river to the place I call Muskrat and go for a hike up to the old Indian Lady’s Face Rock.
A friendly little bird
Heavy poison oak area
We paddled on up to the muskrat area and found a place to land our boats which wasn’t too muddy and went ashore. We secured our boats and started up the hill going through some thick poison oak. Fortunately none of us catch it much as the place is full of it and there is no way one could avoid it all.
It’s not hard if you know where the trails are
We went through a lot of brush, but if you know where the trail is it’s not too hard to get to the ridge top. The trail goes through a number of different micro climate type areas so it’s an interesting hike. And because the trail is just an animal trail, it works out every muscle in your body which us older guys need.
The big rock
We stayed on the rock for an hour or so shooting the bull.
Headed back down to the river
Stopping at Buzzard Rock
Paddling back down to Jenner
We got back in our boats and headed down the river. John said good bye and headed on in faster than Ray and I wanted to go.
Ray and I aren’t as young as we used to be
Ray and I realized just how beat we where as we pulled into the boat ramp and loaded our boats and went on in for the day.
That was pretty much my day as I was too pooped to do much once I got home.
Nice day hiking Jenner.
