Wednesday September 10, 2014 Jenner CA.
It looked like the wind was going to stay down today from looking at the weather report and sure enough, when I arrived at Jenner, there was just a breeze. Ray was putting his boa in the water at the boat ramp.
We paddled across the river and decided to go up to the Markham hole area about two and a half miles or so up the river. Ray wanted to go ashore up there and check out an old car we saw the other day and just look around the area.
Chopper planting power poles
As we crossed the river a chopper came into view after alerting us to it’s presence with all the noise those things make.
Biologists using their net
We worked our way up the river and at Paddy’s rock we ran into some biologists.
They were catching and tagging fish to track, among other things. They weigh and measure most of the specimens they collect as well as count the number of each different species.
We left then at it and continued on up the river.
More power pole guys
Did some exploring on the shore
We explored around that spot looking for a way to get through all the brush and made a little progress. It’s an interesting place and we always wonder what the old timers did in this spot, many years ago.
Noisy chopper is back
As we got back in our boats, that noisy chopper came back again. They had installed a new power pole while we were at the Markham hole and now the chopper had come back to remove the old pole, which he is just doing in this picture.
Turns out they were putting in a lot of new poles with the chopper today, so it was a fairly noisy day.
Fogs coming in
We got our boats out of the water and went on home for naps.
Another nice day kayaking on the Russian River.
