Trinity River Restoration Project, Trinity River, Trinity County, California

The other day I was swimming and the workers were working on the restoration area in the river.  They are trying to restore the shallow banks so that the salmon can continue to breed and spawn. In the last photo you can see the cloud of dust from the truck emptying it’s load.

Duck and Ducklings, Trinity River, Trinity County

Often as I approach the river I scare the ducks away.  This is the case again.  They really are not friendly like you see in the parks in the cities.  They know they are food, and they don’t expect anyone to give them food.

Naked Ladies, Flowers, Northern California, Shasta County



One of my favorite flowers naked ladies.  Known as naked ladies because they do not have any leaves just one thick stem.
For the past couple years, there have been naked lady volunteers in the yard.  They have such beautiful pink flowers.  They seem to show up in new places every year.
