Thursday June 13, 2019 Jenner CA.
I was planning on doing some shopping today but Joe, who I wanted to also visit wasn’t going to be in so I canceled the shopping until tomorrow and drove on down to Jenner to kayak. There was some high fog coming in as I arrived which made it a bit cool as the fog acts like an air conditioner.
I put my boat in the water and started my paddle up the river a bit taking my time. I only go up about a mile or so and that’s usually far enough to keep me busy for the day.
High fog today
Turned around at Muskrat
Big fish bones
As I continued on down along the river I noticed this big thing of fish bones. The bones are pretty good size. The ribs are about six inches long. I was wondering what kind of fish that was. I believe some birds have been eating on it as anything else would have destroyed the bones during the eating process.
Swamp Rock for Blackberries and a hike
I had blackberries on my mind again as that’s the season around here for them so I pulled in here at Swamp Rock Trailhead with plans to eat some berries and hike over to Swamp Rock if I could get through the swamp, meaning if it was dry or not.
Blackberries are getting riper
They look better than they are
Headed to the rock
Getting to the top
But I’m only on a rock shelf at the front of the rock and not at the top yet which is just above me and looks like this. I decided to try and get on up there but it took about an hour to do it going through all the brush and looking for a trail to get there.
There was a slide that sled last winter right next to the rock so I walked over to it to check it out and then looked for a trail over to the top of the rock off to the right here. I went over, under and around bushes to get to the top of the rock and it took a long time and some breaks.
Taking out for the day
Shouldn’t really be shopping at this time
I drove on home stopping at the grocery store in Guerneville to get some stuff. I knew it would be busy but it was even busier than I thought. I finally did get out of there. Long check out lines suck.
Once home I checked on my chickens which were doing just fine and that was my day for a nice paddle and a hike and the blackberries were pretty good too.
