SUMMER '09 WRAP UP cont...

Vista shot. LOVE the early morning mists that drift through the valley. Intense late fall sunset...Garden abundance: Tomatoes, pumpkins, peppers, pears, nectarines, almonds, grapes - some real bad (wasted) with the powdery mildew after August RAIN - cucumbers, and corn! i love the honeybee working the sweetcorn!

Fall was punctuated by the tragic loss of my dear friend Avi Livingstone (abbie rush) in late September. She arrived with me to Humboldt County in 1982, and was a friend and sister for many years. Details of her death here. She left behind her adult children Eshaih and Shoshona, 12 year old Elon, and 8 year old twins: Hana and Coby. ...Uncertain if there really is fate. Below, circa 1983 with my firstborn daughter....AND we won this beautiful community crafted quilt from Salmon Creek Community School. Confident there is magic. i have close ups of the quilt to share, and more pics of summer '09.

Hey! I work for the BLM at the King Range office in Whitethorn. I'm looking for local photographers that would be interested in submitting their photos of the King Range to be used in our front office. Would you be interested? Or do you know anyone else that would be? Please contact me.... Rachel_Sowards at

Nice garden haul, Jojo! We don't grow nearly as much a variety as you do (if we owned the place we would) but we are going to get between 600 and 800 tomatoes this year --drool.

Nice sunrise pics, like the fog in the valleys.

Major bummer about your friend, sounds like it was way too early for her.
