Chadbourne Gulch - Hwy 1
- May 1, 2011 -- This morning, I was able to leave Jim and his back
injury for a while. I drove north along Hwy 1 to Chadbourne Gulch.
It appears that someone had put up a barrier to the east section,
but it was not intentional. A willow has fallen at the entrance, but
one can easily get by it to the trail.
There were many WILSON'S and ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS.
I saw a MACGILLIVRAY'S WARBLER and a YELLOW WARBLER,plus
the resident GREAT HORNED OWL along the trail. One critter I have
never encountered there was a tick ----- this time I came home with at
least 6 to 8 ticks! Yucky. So, be careful if going there.
Chadbourne Gulch is south of Westport at mm 75.47.
North of Fort Bragg, MEN, California
