Towne Pass.

As we prepare to head back to LV, here's a slide show
of some snaps across the Valley.

The Scene


Even though it was freezing cold, and the river had
dropped by half, the rafting folk made a constant parade


Most of the beach is back now


This silly young scrub jay entertained us with his antics.

Heroic Sky

 
The wild Memorial Day weather moved out on Monday. There was wind, rain and even snow at 6000ft. But this afternoon the sky was just plain beautiful. Click the photo for the giant version.

Fritzi's not feeling good


She's been listless and tired, perhaps from antibiotics
or maybe something else, so we sit and watch over
her. Hence all the sudden blogging...

Dave attempts surfing on the Kern


He brought his surfboard, wetsuit and a hank of rope, which he tied to the tree. He almost made it standing up...



On this particular day, the river was flowing at near it's peak of 3000 cfs.

King Snake!





And off he goes!

Weird May Weather

 
We had dinner at Ewings for Josh's birthday and watched the storm approach.

Meet Fritzi




She's a ten-week-old German Shepard puppy and a love. She came from the Grewe Training Center in Tehachapi.
