Today we knew we wanted to go walking but weren't sure where. We ended up cutting north off Hwy 32 down to Big Chico Creek then up to Ponderosa Way and the Cohasset Ridge.
We were in a two wheel drive gas powered small truck that a friend is selling Michael. After sunset and the crescent moon was hanging in the western sky we had some real adventures with making our way out of there but the hikes along the creek and then up to the ridgeline for the view to north and west were amazing.
I read that there is a bill in Congress to enlarge the Ishi Wilderness by 48,000 acres, saving the spawning grounds along Deer and Mill Creeks
. I think of the ancient genocide of the Yahi and Yana peoples who lived in this country until 1850. For the wild spirit of these lands it would be good to do. The Off Road Vehicle people are thrashing everything that is accessible to them and currently there is nothing protecting these wild places.
