Autumn Equinox

At dusk tonight we went up Humboldt Rd. which rises immediately out of the valley on the eastern edge of Chico. The moon rose over pale tummy hair grass and itchy seed sharers as we wandered the Stilson Canyon north ridge. As we were leaving we heard the gargling chortle of sandhill crane overhead heading south.

On Monday we paddled the Feather River with Ann and Linda in order to see the salmon and experience a free day. The day was rich with birds, fish and the funny little lion faced otter person below.

On Sunday I went out (on bio-diesel) to Pine Creek which is north of Chico about 10 miles. I love where we live but it is too tree sheltered to experience the sky fully. The clouds that day were incredible and it rained some and generally outdid itself for glory and constant changes in all directions.
This is my favorite time of year and I'm grateful in the midst of fairly constant consternation about human activities to have this wonderful husband who encourages me and us to support our spirits in nature.

such a sweet reminder....note to self: don't get so caught up in the details of livelihood, and householder-hood that you forget to feed your spirit with free, unstructured moments in nature.....thanks chris.....wz
