This was recorded beside upper South Fork Lake in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, Klamath National Forest, Siskiyou County, California. Thunderstorms passed by over the ridge east of the lake, then rumbled off into the distance, while a few light rain showers passed overhead, with breezes which stirred up wind ripples that lapped gently at the rocky shoreline. The occasional splash you'll hear are trout jumping.
This podcast is entirely produced by me with production help from my dog and is supported by listeners like you. Your support is greatly appreciated and is currently being set aside until I have enough funds to purchase a higher quality microphone so that I can provide all my listeners with an overall better listening experience. If you would like to help me reach my goal, you can do so by clicking the support link at the end of this podcast description. These are tough times and I understand that most people don't really have enough money to donate to a silly nature sounds podcast, but for those of you that do I am extremely grateful. I am committed to putting every last bit towards improving the podcast for you and all listeners. Thank you.
I haven't been updating the Facebook page for the podcast. I aim to provide you with a break from the anthropocentric world, and nothing could be more anthropocentric than Facebook and social media in general. But I would still like to be able to share pictures of the locations I record and podcast updates. When I figure out a way to do that I will let you know.
I hope that, if you can, you have been able to get out into nature yourself and find some peace and solitude. Just as live music is better than a recording, live nature is infinitely better than any recording. And I hope that if you did get out into nature you practiced Leave No Trace ethics, which means that you took only pictures and left only footprints, you placed your feet mindfully and didn't trample vegetation and compact delicate soils, you didn't disturb or approach wildlife, if you packed it in you packed it out, you picked up any litter that previous visitors carelessly discarded, that you did what you could to leave the area better than you found it for the next visitors, and that you observed and followed all of the rules and regulations for the area you are visiting which were put in place to ensure an enjoyable outdoor experience for everyone.
This is a stressful and chaotic time we are living through right now, I hope that everyone is doing what they can to stay healthy both mentally and physically. Thank you all for listening. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay sound.
