Almanac: West Coast Greetings
Gentle Readers: No regular Almanac column this week or next because I’m in Oregon and Washington on various explorations. I’ve seen all sorts of unfamiliar flowers, critters, and geology that could provide fodder for a column, but since a big part of my motivation for writing is sharing things that I think readers could discover for themselves, I’ll refrain from my normal ramblings about these west coast things. We survived the brutal heat wave by decamping to the coast for a few days and since then have been exploring mountain trails of various sorts. I’ll do another quick sketch next week, then will be back to my usual musings!
