Wednesday May 26, 2021 Jenner CA.
Meeting in the park
Michele pretty much runs this park and during the recent forest fire she asked for my forest fire pictures to do some kind of visitor center presentation so I said sure you can have them all so I wanted to take care of transferring all the forest fire pictures to her. We loaded them on her laptop.
Then I had some other business to discuss with her that went well and we shot the bull for a bit before I left for home.
Windy for a yak, but
When I got home I felt like going for a yak. I checked the wind report and it was a bit high around 15 miles per hour but what the heck, I could handle that so I got my stuff and headed for Jenner arriving around 2PM.
Busy boat ramp
There were some big boat rental trailers parked at the ramp to receive a bunch of boats headed our way that I could see would be at the ramp real soon. The boat rental people were courteous enough not to block the ramp so I was able to back down to the water and unload my boat. I quickly parked the car and got in my boat and out of there just in time before all the boats landed.
Sat under the bridge
Overgrown trail at Eagles Landing
I pulled into this spot I call Eagles Landing to go for a hike up the hill but I forgot my hand clippers and since I hadn’t been on this trail for a couple years the trail was too overgrown for me to use it so I got back in my boat to try another spot.
Hike across the swamp
View from the rock
My boat is on the river across this swampy area. I was hoping to find some small ripe wild blackberries but it was too early. It doesn’t look like there will be many blackberries this year as most of the plants where dried out from lack of rain.
Chatting with John
After a good break there I headed across the river to the Jenner boat ramp and pulled my boat out and was about to leave when John who lives down here showed up for a bull session so we shot it for about an hour.
John was in a talkative mood so I finally just had to say time to go and headed on home.
