I got my check last night, so naturally I went down to the valley and started spending it today.
One thing that I bought was a good investment—The Amateur Naturalist’s Handbook. I first found this book in the Round Lake library back in Illinois about a year ago. I’m glad to own a copy of it now. It’s a good primer for all of those –ologies I mentioned earlier that I want to learn more about.
Yesterday I went to Big Creek with Anne and Jose. It’s amazing how smooth and rounded all the rock was—so aesthetically pleasing. I’d like to go back with a camera and my journal before we leave Wawona.
