I am beginning the 31 Day challenge series this month over at write31days.com and combining it with a photograph prompt list from captureyour365.com.
Prompt one is "Where I Work" which is Sacramento, California. One of the missions where I work is to protect the Sacramento Delta. Since I know very little about this complex ecosystem, I went on an educational science-based tour. One of our stops was Locke.
While the town population averaged about 600 people, it could swell to 1,500 during the growing season and on weekends.
I never knew this historic little town existed. Oh, and the crawdad shown at the beginning of this post - he was released back into the Delta.
On Day 2 I will feature a few more images from the region.
