I mentioned fire -  that, combined with periodic grazing by large ungulates, is what keeps a prairie a prairie. and it's no accident that the dominant trees in all three of the major north American savanna regions are oaks, since they have a thick, tough bark that protects them from wildfires which sweep through on a roughly 5 to 10 year cycle and wipe out any woody shrubs and thinner skinned trees encroaching from the gallery forests.

This one almost took my life a few years back. I had seen some good prairie fires off to the east of where i was driving along KS 177 one day, so I pulled over to get some photos. Was just standing there on the shoulder of the road snapping pics, so focused on what was happening a half mile or so away that I didn't notice a dense, matted stand of last year's switchgrass right at my feet had ignited until it explosively burst into intense, 8 foot high flames all around me. I managed to bound out of it with only most of the hair on my arms and eyebrows sizzled off, but for a few days afterward people kept asking how I'd managed to get such a nice sunburn that early in the year. ADD is a terrible thing... 

;-P

HELLO FRIEND ???  I am so sure! Anyone befriends that thing gonna wake up one night to find it extracting their kids' pituitary glands to transport back to the mother ship, and it serves em right too. Whatever happened to nice, normal childrens' stories based on wholesome characters like a hairy molester with anger management issues who lives in a garbage can, or that vicious, mentally ill old harridan in the woods who lures you into her hovel then bakes you in a oven? Where did we go so wrong, Amy?

JMac - my only other roadtrip in northern California was through Marin and on into the Sonoma wine country. Unfortunately, since I both left and returned from that one at night, the only pics I have of Marin County were taken while looking at it from  Oakland or SF. This one is from China Beach -

And in this one, though I was technically in Marin County when I took it, all you can see is the Golden Gate Bridge getting ready to fling me back into San Francisco to die

Wait a minute...I found one! Here I am in Santa Rosa, which, while it's not in Marin, is safely on the other side of it

Tildy says "hi heron. do yu have any bacon?"

Tildy you skanky, two timing, bacon slut!    Who was it that was worried about you driving on those wind-y roads?  Who would have slipped you pieces of ketch free hot dogs??  Who would have fought for YOUR equality and to free you from male domination?  

You dump all of that to beg for a damn piece of bacon I would have given you freely?

That's it...  we are done, bitch!  As the great philosopher Elvis once said about you...

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
You ain't no friend of mine

P.S.   Maybe Green Heron will buy you this t shirt to keep you warm at night, you BACON WHORE!
