I'm on the second level of brother and sister-in-law's cabin. The terrain is very steep. If an animal had the inclination to do so, they could jump from the oak tree through the window and say hello. Shari and I came up yesterday to help gather some items for our oldest daughter and granddaughter's apartment. They are moving out after a little over a year-in-a-half with us. Are we excited? Absolutely!
Evidence of the California drought is haunting in these mountains. Hundreds of huge pine trees are brown, dead or dying. Really sad. I would like to stay and pee on every tree to help out, but, it's just not practical right now.
