Indian Grinding Rock State Historic Park (IGR) is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills 12 miles east of Jackson, CA. The park nestles in a little valley 2,400 feet above sea level with open meadows and large valley oaks that once provided the Native Americans of this area with an ample supply of acorns. There is a museum and Native American village here to tour. Several easyish nature trails provide views of the park and wildlife.

As of noon Sunday, the weather forecast is for thundershowers on Friday, with a quarter inch of rain, and then cloudy for the rest of the weekend. Not too bad, considering.

I'm working on my haiku's.

Am I close?

Comment by John LaTorre on March 13, 2018 at 6:00pm

Close, but no cheroot. 

Regis, I'd appreciate it if you could bring the tentage for this one. I may be late getting to the site. Going in for a root canal job tomorrow morning ... fun, fun, fun. I usually bounce back pretty quick from this sort of thing, but you never know.

No worries.  I'll bring everything.  Try to get us some Percocet?  Yummy

Sending happy thoughts for a speedy recovery otherwise Ralph will be subjected to some pretty shitty guitar music .  Believe me, I know.

I will send you a rescue boat and a dentist. Have fun!
