Ben and I head towards the Sacramento wetlands in the car with no name to observe geese and to check on my future home.
I intend to die in a camper on the back of a pickup truck and this necessitates purchasing both. I had better hurry as I hear the bell tolling. Accordingly we drive fast up 80 to the camper workshop
Have a look at the 4 Wheel Camper site: http://www.fourwh.com/
We then head north as the evening draws in. Thousands of geese are flying into the wetlands to spend the night in ponds of freezing water. It is an soul restoring sight. The vast majority are Snow Geese with some Ross Geese and White Fronted Geese, I think but I have left my field guide in Okinawa, thrown in.
It gets dark so we head to Walmart.
We are up before dawn to catch the early birds catching the worms.
We pass a unforgettable morning.
We go for breakfast in the Black Bear Diner.
We go back to the wetlands and have another glorious session of wildlife.
Such happiness, cheap gas and millions of rare birds.
