    Episode 56: Natural Shelter from the Storm

    Episode 56: Natural Shelter from the Storm

    This was recorded just inside the entrance of a lava tube during a storm on the north flank of the Medicine Lake Volcano in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. The gusty wind blew swiftly across the brush and pine trees on the lava field above, while the falling rain gathered and dripped from the jagged lava rock around the lava tube entrance.

    Episode 55: Snow Falling From Towering Sugar Pines

    Episode 55: Snow Falling From Towering Sugar Pines

    This was recorded in a dense forest the morning after the first measurable snowfall of the year beneath massive, towering Sugar Pine trees and other native conifers in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. As the sun hit the treetops above, it warmed the snow laden foliage, which loosened it's icy grip and sent it's load cascading into the branches below and onto the snow covered forest floor.

    Episode 54: Deep Forest Breeze

    Episode 54: Deep Forest Breeze

    This was recorded on a breezy autumn day in a densely forested gully near the Pacific Crest Trail in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Shasta County, California. Wind blows steadily in the treetops with occasional gusts rustling the dry Pacific Dogwood leaves still clinging to their trees while showers of Douglas Fir needles rain down from the massive trees towering above. 



    There is some unfortunate noise pollution in the form of air traffic in this episode, I hope it doesn't ruin the listening experience too much. It's not the first time there has been noise pollution in an episode, but it is definitely the most noticeable. I thought that otherwise it was an interesting recording, so I decided to release it. There are chattering squirrels, a pileated woodpecker, ravens and their wingbeats, and lots of other interesting forest sounds aside from the commercial air traffic. I was thinking of labelling episodes with gratuitous noise pollution explicit, if only as a way of giving you a little warning about it without having to read through the episode description.

    Episode 53: McCloud River Trail- From Upper to Middle Fall under the Full Moon

    Episode 53: McCloud River Trail- From Upper to Middle Fall under the Full Moon

    This was recorded while walking on the McCloud River Trail beneath the full moon in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. The McCloud River Trail winds along the McCloud River and passes three creatively named yet nonetheless beautiful waterfalls, Upper, Middle, and Lower, the largest being Middle Fall at over fifty feet tall and one hundred feet wide. This recording takes you down the trail from just above Upper Fall, to below Middle Fall.

    Episode 52: Squaw Valley Creek Trail- Autumn Morning Walk

    Episode 52: Squaw Valley Creek Trail- Autumn Morning Walk

    This was recorded while walking down the Squaw Valley Creek Trail in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Shasta County, California. The trail meanders along Squaw Valley Creek as it descends, over numerous rapids and a couple small waterfalls, into a deep and densely forested canyon studded with massive, old growth conifers, live oaks, and a lush understory of Pacific Dogwood, Vine Maple, California Hazel, Bigleaf Maple, and California Black Oak, which were resplendent with fall color.



    I had an interesting black bear encounter while out making this episode. Just after I finished recording, while walking down the trail, I noticed an abundance of fresh bear tracks criss-crossing a stand of short(eight to ten foot tall) and scrubby Oracle Oaks, a hybrid between Interior Live Oak and California Black Oak. As I was stopped and inspecting the tracks, I looked to my left and saw a large black mass in the tops of the short trees, which promptly plopped down onto the ground and scurried away through the undergrowth. I can only guess that it was up there enjoying a snack, as the trees were loaded with acorns.

    I hope you are all staying healthy in body and mind as we all navigate this pandemic and unsettlingly dystopian human world. As our American election nears I hope you are keeping the Earth, our planet, our home, in mind as you head to the polls or complete your mail in ballot. I hope that you will choose candidates that will aggressively fight climate change and enact policies that will preserve, protect, and defend our environment and the natural world for our grandchildren and their grandchildren. And if you live elsewhere in the world, in a country that holds democratic elections, I hope you will keep these thoughts in mind  when you make your choices. Thank you all very much for listening.

    Episode 51: Mount Shasta- Wind at Treeline

    Episode 51: Mount Shasta- Wind at Treeline

    This episode was recorded at treeline beneath a stunted cluster of krummholz Whitebark Pine atop the ridge on the north side of upper Ash Creek Canyon on the east side of Mount Shasta in the Mount Shasta Wilderness, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. It was a sunny and clear day, and the wind blew briskly across the top of the short, shield like canopy formed by the twisted, weather beaten trees growing at the cusp of habitability. My production assistant had to sit this one out as his species is prohibited from entering the Mount Shasta Wilderness. He's a dog.

    What a time to be alive. I hope you all are staying as healthy as possible, both mentally and physically, in this increasingly dystopian world. As our American presidential election nears I hope that you will keep the Earth, our planet, our home, in mind as you go to the polls. I hope that you will choose candidates that will fight climate change and enact policies that will protect our environment and preserve the natural world for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.
