The boys stumble out of the poison oak. The old miner has a head start. Will they catch him?
There is a commotion in the bushes and the old miner catches wind of Dick and Don.
Dick and Don were itching for a fight with the old miner, now they get to have an itchy fight. Bad luck, Looks like the boys stumbled into a patch of Pacific Poison Oak (Toxicodendron diversilobum).
Dick and Don spy on the old miner and scheme plans to take back their stolen gold. Are they itching for a fight or is that poison oak?
After the long fall.
Found twenty minutes to paint while passing though Dunsmuir on my way north to see the great American eclipse in Oregon. Forgot to bring ink so I’ll clean this up a bit later. Can’t complain, after six hours in the car with three boys just sitting by a river is bliss.
Sorry for the inconvenience folks, but our boys must take a brief break from their normal fun loving adventures to kick the snot out of the clan.
At the old miners camp, the wild eyed mountain man is preparing a feast to celebrate his new found wealth.
A quick beach painting I made while my boys got ready for bed. Kids are jumping all over the place, time to eject. This is as far as I got.
Dick and Don take a tumble down towards the old miners camp.
