It was a fantastic day on the trails around Auburn, near the Western States Trail. We've had only one sprinkle so far and there isn't another due for over a week, but there's actually a fair bit of bright green gross poking up through the straw. The smell of the dust and vegetation is unmistakable smell to the dust and vegetation on a warm Northern California fall day like this. I met a California king snake enjoying the days well, whose flicking black tongue was tasting the same smells.
Solvitur ambulando! Note the thick brow-ridge, the idiotic grin, and the death-grip on the beverage. You can email this handsome devil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
