Mad River, California plus Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park

How many of you have ever driven the road (Rt 36) from Susanville through to Red Bluff & then onto Eureka? The road from Susanville to Red Bluff is fine – a little windy but nothing major. But then the road changes! It took us 3 hours to drive theĀ 100 miles from Red Bluff to Mad River. Mad River is a little community way, way in the mountains. It’s official population is 35.

Native Milking Shorthorns

From Wyoming we headed through Utah. Took Interstate 80 right through the Salt Flats. The sun was starting to go down & it was a little hazy so not able to take any photos.

We had not seen Jonathan, Tracy & their three boys since they visited us in Montana 6 years ago so a visit was long overdue. Of course the kids have grown... read more

Our “home” in Palmer, Alaska

As I have told you already, Linda, the lady we took horses to Alaska for, graciously allowed us to use their rental home to stay in whilst we were there. That was a HUGE blessing. Hotels are expensive in Alaska & without this blessing we would not have been able to stay & vacation. SO I thought I would show you where we stayed: The next picture shows you the view from their house. I purposely... read more
