Had to look that one up cause the photo reminded me of Lime Kiln Beach just south of Big Sur State Park....

Yachats (say YAH-hots) was named after the Yachats River, and is a word derived from native local languages. Ya’Xaik (YAH-hike) was the Alseas’ word for the locale.

Nestled between lush forested mountains and rhythmic Pacific surf, the vibrant village of Yachats opens a window to the environment.

It is a magical place for a peaceful retreat, outdoor adventure, exploration, and romance.

Come visit the gem of the Oregon coast and feel like a local.

Also this....

I grew Bloody Butcher corn for a couple years...

I won a blue ribbon at the county fair one year...

Bloody Butcher

120 days — 'Bloody Butcher' is an old dent-type corn has been grown in the United States since at least 1845. Its stalks reach ten to twelve feet tall producing two to six ears of corn per plant.

The kernels are striped red or dark red on pink to red cobs. An occasional white ear may appear. Can be used for roasting or frying when young but generally used for flour or corn meal. Good flavored. Each packet contains one ounce, which is approximately 100 seeds.

Can you see the one not like the others?

Zen-like state?
No longer believes the party line?

If China has AI that can scan pics - this guy might end up in trouble for this...

Been working in the deep woods on a lake in copperhead country. At the entrance to the place I'm working there's a fallen tree that someone carved a giant copperhead into. The carved snake is probably 12-14' long.

I also have an auto-aerating yard these days, seems like the raccoons come through 3 or 4 nights a week to feast on the grubs in my pesticide-free yard. That pesticide-free label might change very soon.

A part of my yard looks just like that. Wasn't sure what was doing it but saw a squirrel digging round. Come to think of it, skunks and possum are regular visitors around here and they love grubs.

Mine does too but it's the armadillos in this case.

I have never seen an armadillo but their eggs are delicious. :D
I've had a fascination with them ever since moving to Arkansas. I Came Upon one during the day on the side of a hiking trail and I walked right up to him and he was totally clueless that I was there. They have very poor vision/awareness of surroundings and often end up as Roadkill. I think they're just neat to watch move around in that armor.

I love critters. Even the skunks. One night I was heading to the garage to get my telescope mount and I heard something in the garden in front of me. I assumed it was a raccoon and proceeded to scare it away clapping at it. I took out my camera to shine a light at it to see what it was and realized right away that it was a skunk. It was cute and in no way looked like it was threatening to spray. It was just looking at me with sad eyes that said "why do I have to leave?". Since it was my first encounter I quickly went the other way. Since then, they just do their own thing and I do mine. They often seem to be curious about what I am up to when I'm out at night.

I had a similar event when I was out in the backyard in the dark looking at the stars heard something and when I shine my light on it realized it was a skunk. He ended up walking within two feet of me and didn't even know I was there. He kept scrounging around and was soon out of sight.

It's great to hear all the stories of what digs up everyone's lawns. I put the camera up and maybe can catch them in the act one night. I'm pretty sure it's raccoons, but could be skunks or possums.
My mom has javelina in her yard, and they can chew up a lot of cactus in one night.

There are these mounds west of Hanover Colorado. Not sure why they formed. Everything around them is flat land. Unusual formations. Glacial deposits? You'd think there would be more of them....

If there is a red clay rock around them it would be where a coal seam burned. We have similar geology to the north. The ancient coal fires fired the bentonite clay and the red tone is caused by oxidized iron within the clay. The rock is called scorio. Many of the fires continued to burn until Roosevelt’s CCW (?) put them out in the 30’s

I am relieved to hear you say that. (*whew!*) Otherwise, you would have had a pack of mutant racketycoons out back.

"...their favorite foods include nuts, berries, insects, and eggs. When they set up their denning sites near bodies of water, raccoons habitually catch fish, shellfish, reptiles, and amphibians. There have been rumors of mutant raccoons that escaped from the Krile Research Laboratory in southern Minnesota that look, behave, and breed exactly like armadillos." ***

I caught this hammerhead shark, off the coast of San Diego, back in the mid 1980's. It was 22 inches eyeball to eyeball & about 9 ft long. We cut off it's head, gutted & removed about a foot of gill plates. We then tied it's tail to a cleat & drug'em backwards for an hour to leach out the uric acid. This shark was as good to eat as sword fish steak.

Her it is with 2 large tuna, 70 lbs & 138 lbs. The gaff to the right is 6 ft long & bent back from gaffing the shark. The Pepsi can is where the gill plates were.
