Week 5, day 1, Rubber Boot Journalist. Starting the south side of Mt. Shasta today. They do some different crops from the east side–wild rice, some blueberries, mini watermelons, cattle, forages. Also made it a third of the way through Falling!
Week 5, day 2, Rubber Boot Journalist. Still working on the south side of Mt. Shasta. Something really cool is there are parts of this area where you can see Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. Made the halfway point on the last read on Falling, too.
Week 5, day 3, Rubber Boot Journalist. Had an early photo shoot in the rain and actually pulled out the rubber boots to wade in the manure this morning. Now I’m back and working on Mt. Shasta south again. This ranch in raises a lot of forage and they raise enough for their cattle and the wildlife. Pretty cool, huh? On the Falling front I finished the read and I’m sending it off to the editor. Next order of business the back cover blurb.
Week 5, day 4, Rubber Boot Journalist. Wrapping up the Mt. Shasta south article and going over notes for the Mt. Shasta west article. I’ve added some pics of Timothy hay being harvested. And I’m printing off Falling for my editor!
Week 5, day 5, Rubber Boot Journalist. Finishing the Mt. Shasta south today and looking at wild rice production. Also trying to finish the back blurb for Falling while 40 mph north winds howl outside my door.
