This Cedar Waxwing was found on Hwy 9. I was so tame just sitting in our hands. The plan for the day was to clear a redwood off of STS trail but when we got there it was already open.
All day we follow the same route that the State crew did a week earlier. It was a nice walk an there were numerous mushrooms. We had lunch on Middle Ridge fire road near Johansen fire road with three baby rattle snakes. Luck for us it was a cool day and no one sat on them before we noticed them.
This was the tree we were after to clear. I brought the whip saw but we didn't get a chance to use it.
See you on the trail - Jeff
