by Jinny Johnson
National Geographic, 2008.

~ more notes and photos from my October trip to Oregon and California ~
There’s no doubt about it — my friend and I are a couple of wave junkies. No matter where we were along the coast, we spent many hours perched on high look-offs, or clambering about on rocky outcrops searching for the best [...]

I’ve never seen these moths around the farm before, so that [...]
