OFG out Wandering About

Recommended Posts

mullin was the second plant i ever learned. i have also used the dead stalk for handrill and i like to teach kids how to make a wistle/birdcall out of one.  ive used the plant for its expectorant qualities but  didnt know to "filter" it before drinking it. the little hairs can really irritate your throat. great pics Ofg. thanks for sharing.

It was a beautiful day to be out.  I loved the sound of my boots on the hard packed dirt road. I covered 8 miles in 3 hours.

It looks like they are still using river gravel on some of those roads. They use every available inch of ground dont they. Looks like pheasant country. Any dirt road around here is constantly torn up as the city boys with there urban four wheel drives test them out every chance they get. Too much walkin for this old boy.

This has been "the county line" dirt road for as long as I can remember.  Most of the roads are graveled with limestone.  I didn't see any pheasants on this walk, but there are a few around the area.

I do enjoy it here, sg, and it was a beautiful day to be outside.  Just wish I could get more than 132 feet elevation gain in an 8 mile hike.

Thanks.  It was a fun hike. Even with the cloud cover, there was a lot a light and you could see pretty well after your eyes adjusted.  I was also using my powerful flashlight to spot the little glowing deer eyes off in the woods. At least we hope they were deer eyes...

That one was from back in 2006 when I was hiking at Bidwell Park just out side of Chico, California. 

 

And yes, I am ready to get back to the Canyon.

Never seen it.

...this might have something to do with it:
