today i was going to be in Eastbaysia in the evening, so i decided to do some Naturing over here! i visited a newtome place. and the name was justified! lots of Evergreen Huckleberry! with berries!! also, filled with what i now call Protective Poison Oak, thanks to the Oak Woodlands book Yvonne Ellefson got me. colored up the place nicely! and, i fell in love with the Manzanitas along the Upper Loop. nice preserve over here!
