Marginal lands this week!

© 2011 Joshua Stark

It is the time of year in Northern California when those of us who know it start hitting the marginal lands, those places on the edges of civilization, looking for good things to eat and a great time while we're at it.

You see, it is Summertime when these lands really provide.  We've got fennel blooming, ripe berries and fruits, great fishing, and rabbit season just started.  This week, I'll be hitting some of my favorite spots, looking in particular for blackberries, gooseberries, figs, and bunnies.  I'll also be trying two new things:  Trapping crawdads (which, though not really new to me, still something I haven't done in ages), and possibly bowfishing from a canoe for carp.  Hopefully, I'll cajole somebody with a camera to come out, especially for the bowfishing.

You might be able to talk my camera into going out.

Great! I'll let you know when we get a chance.

Been dreaming on a bowfishing canoe trip for a while now. With Kiddo #1 in the house, these dreams stepped back a bit, but they're still alive.

I hope you find a photographer for that (and all of this actually).

Bpaul, you are always welcome to come on down and give it a try!
