Today is the bicycle tour of the lost coast, so that means our annual helicopter training, and of course the best part, the helicopter ride above Ferndale. This year I sat on the other side to the chopper, so I was able to get pictures of the ranches surrounding Ferndale. I was also able to get a few pictures of our house as we flew over. You can see that most of the yard has either been plowed under, or killed with Round Up. Unfortunately, you can also see our junk wood pile. Altogether not a pretty site compared to the surrounding greenery. We’re kind of a desert in the middle of an oasis.
