Creek Running North
February 27, 2005
A walk with Becky
Photo: Trillium chloropetallum, Bear Creek Trail, Orinda, today. We hiked about six miles, 58 total for me so far this year. I know none of you care: this is just the easiest way for me to keep track. We saw things charming, things sublime, and (don't look at this next one if you're squeamish: you have been warned) things grotesque.
One of the things I like best about my companion of the last 16 years is that she finds stuff like that last as fascinating as I do.
Back at home shuttered against the rain, I think it's time again to post some reciprocal links (the official currency of Blogsylvania) for some of the folks not currently in my blogroll who've linked to Creek Running North. A few I've been meaning to add to the blogroll for some time.

Addendum: The estimable Hank Fox thoughtfully provided a link this month as well, and Technorati didn't pick it up for some reason. Hank's got a great site. Even just seeing his logo is worth a click.

Dead things are very cool. (Not as cool as live ones, but still.)Posted by: Rana at February 28, 2005 12:51 PM
Fascinating to me too; I'd be right in there, poking around.Posted by: beth at February 28, 2005 03:38 PM

Yum, fresh venison! But somebody did not clean their plate.
Did you see tracks - bobcat, coyotes, feral dogs, mountain lion?
You are right. Seeing the other side of nature, especially from the inside out, is fascinating. I found a similar skeleton in New Jersey last year. Ligaments still held the bones together but there was no meat left.
By the way, thanks much for posting the link.Posted by: michlt at March 31, 2005 06:58 AM
