Today, up at Point Reyes, I pulled over at the side of the road and got my car firmly stuck in a ditch. Nothing I tried worked and I only succeeded in getting the wheels stuck further. There was no signal on my phone either so I had to walk across a few fields to reach a dairy farm and ask to use their phone. The one person working showed me to the office and I called AAA.
By the time they arrived and pulled me out I was tired, dusty, and frustrated. I was so close to calling it a day and going home, but something told me to keep going, and I’m so glad I did. I saw two norther harriers; one hunting low over a field, the other in a bush. For the second I waited patiently and caught it looking straight at the camera during takeoff. If that hadn’t been enough I came across a herd of elk, and coyote sleeping in a field. He got up, scratched, bathed, and went back to being a badass. Not bad for a day I almost quit on.
