Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve
I set off for a hike in the park. I wanted to explore an old trail I once saw when I was a kid playing in this park. It’s an old trail that I’m sure is not used anymore as when I saw it as a kid it was already abandoned, likely because it was so steep.
Part water guy
I stopped at this house just inside the park as I knew the parks water guy lived there. He didn’t know it yet, but he needs some help with the springs in the parks in the area which I hope to provide. I’d talked with his boss about it a few weeks ago, so I stopped in to see him and will email him some of my spring tapping videos on YouTube.
I knew sorta where the trail was supposed to be, right through here. There used to be little redwood log steps that were pretty rotten when I saw them as a kid. I was hoping to find some, but didn’t really expect any to still be there and they weren’t.
Now that I was on a good trail I made good time, which was good as my back was getting a little more work than I had planned.
Drink of water
The great hamburger
I haven’t had a real hamburger for about 25 years. That was when this corn allergic thing happened.
So today, I added some flour to my sour dough starter and tonight I made two buns, one for a burger. I fried up some onions and some bacon and a nice big burger.
It was so huge, I didn’t think I could eat it. I put it all on a plate and I’m in the process of eating it. I go up to the counter and take a big bite, one at a time. I’m working on it.
