...an unpaid sabbatical. Just call it a break. I've fallen well short of my original goals for this blog and am too busy to continue at this time. Thanks for the comments and feedback people have given me by email and other means. I will continue to find solace in nature walks, with or without camera and notebook, but I will take at least a two-month break from posting here.
I have been teaching since 1965 and have recently joined the English Department as an Associate Faculty member at Feather River College. Recently taught Nature Literature in America and am currently teaching Interpersonal Communication and Basic Reading and Writing.
Here are a few more photos from our recent trip down the Canyon to Caribou Road. I'm running a little behind on the information side, but wanted you to be able to enjoy the photos meanwhile. A real surprise for me was the White Milkweed in the top two photos. I don't know what species it is, but it resembled the Purple Milkweed (bottom photo) in every way except for being white. I wonder if it could be an albino. Probably just a species I can't find in my field guides. I'll be doing a little more research tonight, then posting some field notes about today's and yesterday's photos.
