The primary drainage around the area of Cape Blanco is drained by a river names Sixes. According to Wikipedia this likely is derived from the Chinook word sikhs which means "friend". There were a couple of other variants of the original name but early gold miners in the area who were familiar with Chinook jargon were using the name sixes by the 1850s. I was struck by how green the river valley was at this time of year. My available light was suboptimal with marine layer clouds until almost noon and rolling back in around 4 in the afternoon so I had a choice of shooting midday or under the clouds. C&C always welcome.
