The Evolution of a Thing We Call Friendship

We searched and found the Lone Giant Sequoia near Fish Camp! I had heard of it but had never ventured into the Miami Motorcycle Trails Area and was curious what was there. Don’t let the word “motorcycle” scare you off from venturing into this off road vehicle area. We only saw one on our adventure. If you are looking for ...

Valley of the Moon- Funeraria

Hi all, greetings from the Valley of the Moon. Lots of good hiking and hiking companions here, but so far nothing worthy of photographing.

The Tioga Pass is closed for the winter now, but I am revisiting another one of those hikes we made in December 2011 from the old ghost town and mining community of Bennettville, passing by frozen lakes and waterfalls ...

I Love My T.D. Willey Box!

I always look forward to Thursday afternoons when I pick up my T.D. Willey Box which is dropped off at Nature’s Nutrients in Oakhurst. It is filled with wonderfully fresh locally grown organic vegetables and fruit, most picked 24 hours from delivery of my box. I always have a pretty big garden in the summer but haven’t grown much in ...

Alaska Or Bust!

“Anchorage 3067 miles ahead”, or at least that is what our GPS informed us when we pulled out of our driveway on a warm September afternoon. As we drove through Ahwahnee, my husband pulled out the mp3 player and surprised me with one of the new songs he downloaded for our journey. “North to Alaska. They’re goin’ North, the rush ...
