I visited Auburn’s historic courthouse back in mid April but only examined the exterior. One of these days I hope to return and see the inside — including the Placer County Museum on the first floor.
I stumbled upon this very cool little corner of William Land Park completely by accident; it sits on the side of a hill between the zoo and the Lily Pond. The path is laid out in two diamond shapes, with a small arbor at each of the four outside angles. I was the only person in this small garden at […]
Every time I pass by Auburn’s old courthouse I want to stop and take pictures, but up until now I’ve never managed to actually do it.

I’ve written before about visiting the Cabela’s store in Fort Worth. It’s become a bit of a Christimas tradition for the Big Guy to make a stop there to shop for fishing equipment. This year I was surprised to find myself in parts of the store completely new to me — a huge aquarium and a separate alcove that rivals […]
