Adventure is where you find it; in this case a cow pasture

I find each journey into the country a freeing exercise, especially when news of the COVID-19 pandemic weighs heavily.

Along a country road southeast of Humboldt a pair of fence posts standing like sentinels are evidence of a gate once leading to a house. Just inside the fence, lush green flower stems brighten an otherwise dreary patch of waste ground. 

Beyond is the old homesite bordered by second-growth cedars and weeds laid over by winter kill.

A cellar, once stocked with preserved fruits, vegetables and meat, is easily identified by rocks, broken bricks and other remnants.
