What I Saw At Jasper Ridge Today

In by Chris on January 6, 2011 at 10:15 pm

A newt with a lumpy brown back, an orange belly, and laser blue eyes.
A rabbit hiding under the boardwalk.
A heron flying home towards the sunset high above.
Clouds shaped like a waiter’s arm holding a plate.
A bird of prey sitting unconcerned in the top of a tree, while a flurry of sparrows made noise below.
Tracks of deer, bobcats, raccoons, and mountain bikes.
Chert and serpentine.
A glen of redwoods next to a creek.
Mushrooms and fungi of all shapes and sizes.
Groundhog burrows everywhere.
A mallard riding down the creek.
A deer silhouetted on a hilltop.
