I went for a hike a couple of days ago up an old logging road near the town of Navarro. I'm still somewhat surprised that despite the thick forests that blanket the land near the coast, I can't find any trails that allow a person to walk through them. Perhaps I need to buy a book of local trails.
This particular day, I was looking for a trail, but all I could find was an old logging road. I probably was not supposed to be in this area, but I did not see any signs indicating that I was trespassing. So, I seized the opportunity to walk amongst some redwoods and other conifers, and travelled along an eyesore of a clearing that allowed loggers to find and haul out their booty.
Who was flying above the trees to offer another greeting? The raven of course!
