In the midst of an abnormally dry January and February, the water level at Folsom Lake is currently lower than at this point in the past two years. Still, recreational users are accustomed to seeing the exposed rocks and muddy lake bed every winter; and on this sunny afternoon in mid February there were plenty of hikers, cyclists, and people […]
When there is plenty of driftwood available to work with, these temporary structures can get pretty elaborate. I wonder how many people cooperated to build these; was there an architect involved? I’ll probably never know.
There’s always plenty of music playing on the weekends at Denio’s Farmers Market — but it’s not too often I find a live Mariachi band.

I hope this little car is going to […]

Huell may not be the Next Big Thing, but he definitely had a lot of fun, and this episode is sure to make you smile. Huell’s […]
