I am writing two days in one because last night I did not have service – I sleep near the Klamath River and it was so nice.
I went to Greenhorn Park in Yreka yesterday and hiked along the trail. I just basically walked around. I was so nice to be there because the parking lot was huge and I could just hang out afterwards until the park closed. Greenhorn Park has a history of mining and military. The reservoir is beautiful and along the trail were some little signs stating plant names. I always love that, because I love to learn. iNaturalist is also a really cool app.
The next day, I wanted to go to Burney Falls… drove there and it was closed. Drove back the way I came and stopped at McCloud River Falls instead. It was beautiful. I hiked the lower and middle falls. It was so peaceful, saw just a couple people. The river was breathtaking and I brought my wet suit with me. I can’t wait to go back again and see the upper falls next time, maybe on my way to Burney Falls after it reopens.
There are some amazing birds that some here in the summer. They are called “neotropical” – how cool. Birds that fly here in the summer and go to Mexico and the South Americas in the winter. I could relate to that. Neotropical Rachel-bird. Hummingbirds are one kind of bird that migrates here in the summertime. One of my favorites.
I already miss it. So much peace. So much love. So much grace. So much restful joy. I took a lot of wisdoms with me today from this place. So grateful this special land let me be here.
Waterfall, nothing can harm me at all,The Jimi Hendrix Experience ~ May This Be Love
My worries seem so very small
With my waterfall.
I can see my rainbow calling me
Through the misty breeze
Of my waterfall.
Some people say day-dreaming’s
For all the, huh, lazy minded fools
With nothing else to do.
So let them laugh, laugh at me,
So just as long as I have you
To see me through,
I have nothing to lose ‘long as I have you.
Waterfall, don’t ever change your ways.
Fall with me for a million days,
Oh, my waterfall.
