On the road again……. where’s Willie Nelson when you need him??
Day one is my “get outa town fast” day, so I got on the 5 and went north at 70 mph for about 7 hours. I was gonna keep going – but I saw a sign for the Sacramento National Wildlife Rescue.
I grabbed a room at the Willows Inn, a sweet little concrete block, 10 X 10 cell, where most of you wouldn’t stay. It’s clean and nice and there’s nothing wrong with using the bed as a desk! Anyway – I checked in and left for the Rescue.
It offered a really nice drive through ponds and grasslands. I took about 3 hours to drive and photograph. There are lots of common birds and a few I didn’t know. There were these cool wildflowers growing in one of the ponds:
And here’s some wildlife:
All in all – totally worth the stop. Tomorrow I’ll start looking for gray roads and by Wednesday freeways will cease to exist in my daily wanderings.
