Dan and I have been to this area several times looking for petroglyphs and have found some here and there, but mostly few and far between. We went back last weekend and found a bunch. We were so giddy to find them. If you go exploring for and find petroglyphs please, please, please treat them with respect. Here is a link for some types on how to be responsible in these areas: https://www.basinandrange.org/archeological-sites.html
I love the atmosphere of cold, crisp, evening air mixed with the steam of a natural, wild hot spring.
Unfortunately, I’m spending this beautiful Friday sick in bed. Looking through my photos today, I really liked this solitary Juniper hanging out on the side of a mountain high above the valley below.
Have a great weekend, stay healthy out there!
From our annual January camping trip last weekend. We stayed on the west side of the playa with shining light and wonderful company. Just the best!
The Quilici Ranch Rd section of the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway is one of our favorite places to go when we want a fairly flat, shaded place to hike or ride our bikes. It has great views of the Truckee River and even though the trail’s fairly close to I-80 and the train tracks it still feels like you’re out in the wild. You will likely have a train pass by every once and awhile, which we think adds to the fun!
From our Barlett Peak Peak walk the day after Christmas. Can you spot Larry clambering down that rock?
For the most part we had a great 2017. Lots of Kayaking, hiking, riding, friends, family and more! We hope you had a great year and enjoy this video of our year. It's roughly 11 minutes long and even though it's mostly silent, the videos have some noise or us talking in it.
Dan admiring the wildflowers! This was high in the Sierra Mountains at Highland Lakes. It was August, but it felt like spring. There were crazy amounts of wildflowers and snow down to the lake. This was such a fun day and the wildflowers were such a gift.
Happy December! For this Fun Photo Friday I decided to revisit a hike from December 1, 2013 out in the Flowery Range. I hope everyone’s December is filled with love, hope, joy and peace. Or, at least some egg nog!!! 😜
This blog is dedicated to stories and ideas from our explorations. We hope you enjoy!
