We have lived here in El Dorado County since 1974. We are at 4,000 feet and enjoy 4 full wonderful seasons.

Whenever we could, we went higher up into the mountains, exploring, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, camping, xc skiing, downhill skiing, and wandering aimlessly. We still do.

We’ve met so many wonderful people along the way. Some of them have been pioneers around here, having set up the El Dorado Nordic Ski Patrol, or expanded the Search and Rescue group, flown for the USFS fire service, or served on hot shot crews, managed ski resorts, built some iconic spots that everyone enjoys, taught generations of children, or started mountain themed businesses. All the knowledge we’ve gained is through the good hearts and sharing of everyone who went before us.

We continue to wander aimlessly, talk to good people out on the trails, lakes, and galleries all over the Tahoe Basin, the wonderful SR 88 corridor, Markleeville, the Crystal Basin, and wherever we find ourselves. This site is dedicated to all who love and enjoy this area and the great outdoors.
