Snow in May! And a contest!

Well, we just enjoyed a wonderful week in California Gold Country, "a place quite northwards, it seems" (if you don't recognize that quote, leave a comment and I'll enlighten you).  Anyway, we usually visit Gold Country around this time of year and the only thing I don't love is the heat...but this time, it was pleasantly cool, even cold (to us Los Angelenos, one might even say FREEZING.... which  we did say, until Gene and I stopped in Big Trees Calaveras State Park and not only were there little patches of snow on the ground, as we started driving away, REAL SNOWFLAKES were flying around!  So that was quite an adventure.  I will post the pictures of snow flurries through my bug encrusted windshield in a later post.  So that was very exciting.

Almost as exciting as the prospect of going back to Murphys, California, which we hope to do VERY soon...

And perhaps I will start a new blog of adventures in Murphys.  Let's see, is already taken...maybe  That's probably taken already, too.  So if you have some suggestions, leave 'em in the comments.  If your idea wins, I'll send you a free album!
