So we have gone in search of some animals. Central California has a few animals.
This is not Daisy.
I am sure that Hairy MacLairy would be more than happy to visit here though. This one is the best indication of the air quality out here. The valley has huge ranges on either side and the smog just hangs in here. I suppose it is a combination of very dry silty soils and the industrial level of residual spray dusts on the surrounding orchards and fields. Not an easy place to breathe.
Oh and I must tell you. (you will be so proud..) I have discovered The Food Channel!!! Woohoo, Iron chef here I come!
