Visiting Hoover Dam

Visited Arizona first.  Had a blast.  Met several nice folk, and hope to introduce the blog through an outdoor journal in the near future. After driving through Hoover Dam at least four times, I finally stopped by to check it out.  Wanted the full tour (includes the space inside the dam), but had to settle […]

Lessons forgotten and remembered

*Originally published on October 12, 2010.* Checked out Curtain Falls in Oroville, CA.  Probably one of the more difficult short hikes I’ve been on.  I thought Bear Creek and Traverse Falls were difficult.  The killer was the swimming, bouldering throughout the day and a 1600 ft. climb at the end.  I learned several lessons through […]

I noted at least five cats on the property.  Reportedly, there are more […]

Hanging out at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park

I made a boo boo scheduling my client visits this afternoon.  To burn time, I visited Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park.  I drive by it often, but never actually checked it out. In 1848, James W. Marshall discovered gold on the South Fork of the American River, California.

Eureka, CA

After a botched trip to Chico, CA for work, I went to Eureka, CA.  I traveled through 299; came back home on the 101, then through 20.  Wonderful drive!  I was fortunate that that weather was cooperative and the ride was relatively pain free! While in Eureka, I visited the Blue Ox Millworks.  Blue Ox […]
