these huge trees. In places, the road is
very narrow with huge redwoods on each side of you. We drove through a tree and stopped along the
Eel River and picked black rasberries.
... Good heavens! Last time we saw that was never; we really must be in a foreign land.
Saturday kicked off with a Bay area group, Spark & Whisper who helped move the crowd's mind and body away from the California heat to a cool, shady place. Patchy Sanders dished up some Irish bluegrass which cruised along like Paddy in a Caddy. Perfect Crime was right up my alley, digging deep into the great American song book of pre-MacDougall Street USA.
