The weekend

Got to help put the fence up at Mill Peak and meet lots of nice people. Then went over to the geocaching potluck - got to meet more nice people and had a lot of fun. :) Was a long, busy day but well worth it.

Tomorrow is a big day for me. An interview *gasp*

West Nile Virus

It's here!! Two cases of west nile virus up here in the mountains. One for sure, one suspected. Gotta keep on top of those puddles and such! I'm going to double check that our fountain is dry and all my watering barrels are secure. Mosquitos. Nasty buggars. They'll bring heart worm to my dogs too. Not to mention the Asian mosquito (also called the Flying Tigers!) are now in Orange county. Those are blamed for yellow and dengue fevers. Lovely.

Almost there!

I'm almost done with the new slideshow. I just need to add in text.

Children's Forest slide show

I had a really nice slideshow almost done to put on the site. However, it was HUGE! I'm going to have to do it over and much smaller. I hope it will be finished and uploaded soon.

Mill Peak Fence Project

This weekend is a fence rebuilding project. Sounds like a lot of fun!! I called and signed up today to help out. A couple friends did the same - so I'll know some folks. I'll bring a camera. This is the place we went for Sean's birthday this year with the dogs. I can't wait to see the place again :glee:

Here's a picture from March. You can see me and the dogs along the path (very small looking). The trees there are/were huge! The wind was coming through a little and it was so weird to hear the trees creaking like charcoal. Ready to crumble. I hope it's starting to grow a bit again.

The Pinnacles

I guess this week is picture week :o This is the Pinnacles. I'm fairly certain that most, if not all, of those dead trees have been removed now. It's such a rugged place. I enjoy the distance views, the magic of the place and the quietness. That says a lot when the mountains are fairly quiet anyway :)

The forest is getting a little rain today.

This morning first thing, the air was heavy with the smell of rain. It was so muggy too. At 10am we finally got a good downpour. It was shortlived - only about 10 minutes, but it sure felt good! The monsoon's are here.

Early this morning, around 2am, I went outside and it was so still and warm. The sky had a lot of little clouds and the crickets were chirping away. It made me think that soon it will be too cold to go outside at 2am in bed clothes lol.

It's heading toward fall!! It's nearing that time when the leaves are blowing, the mornings are cold and afternoons are warm. But I'll hang on to a little more summer while I can. *sigh*

The Children's Forest

I love this place. It has such amazing views.

Rise of the Phoenix Trail

This trail is rated as easy and is about 1/2 mile on paved walkways. It is near many other hiking trails and notably near Keller Fire Lookout. To get to this area, take highway 18 toward Running Springs (from Lake Arrowhead area). About 1 mile past Running Springs, on the right, you will pass the forest service parking and building. The very next road is the way to go. Turn right and drive drive drive. About 6 miles up, you will meet up with a Y intersection. The right goes on to Keller Peak and the left goes to the Trail of the Phoenix. *Well* worth the trip. Take a picnic and the puppers for a great day.

Labor Day

Welcome back from the Labor Day holiday. I hope you had a safe and enjoyable holiday. We revisited Holcomb Valley to fill out some gaps in the Gold Fever Trail photolog. Plus we stopped off for a few geocaches in the meantime ;)

Integrated Templates

I believe at this time all pages have been integrated into the "Solitude" template. I will next work on Flash Preloaders. Then comes the fun part of all the slideshows wheee!!

Ok, I'm really excited about this part. I am looking forward to creating these slideshows of places we've been around the state of California.

The archives page is now integrated into the "Solitude" template.
