Phantom Falls – Table Mountain Ecological Reserve

Kristen and I had a great Saturday hiking to Phantom Falls in Table Mountain Ecological Reserve. We wanted to go after the rains to get some photos with a lot of water flowing over. The hike was not as muddy as we thought it would be, and we didn’t fall over at all. We decided we would definitely go back in March, when the wildflowers are blooming. Its a great place to take the dog as well.

Fremont Weir Wildlife Area

Yesterday, Sam and I went to the Fremont Weir Wildlife Area for a mid-morning walk.  The rural drive was quite peaceful and we had the pleasure of seeing many quail run across the road before us.  The dog-friendly wildlife area is roughly 1,500 acres of brush, oaks, willows and cottonwoods.  Hunting season for turkeys and pheasants had just started, so we chose to walk on the crown (top) of the levee in order to be visible to the hunters and their gun dogs, since we were not wearing any high visibility orange clothing.  Of course, the best part was petting dogs. 

Highway 50 Towards Lake Tahoe

Kristen and I took Indie up towards Lake Tahoe, along Highway 50.

We just wanted to take a walk in some snow, and see how she would do.

She seemed to really enjoy it, though she was very cold when sitting still.

Happy 7th Year Anniversary Sam! ~ I love you ~ Kristen


Our New Family Member

Hello Everyone,

We would like you to meet Kanga, our new family member.  For the past few months, Sam has been looking for a pet that he can keep with him at his apartment in Arizona.  Due to the heat and the small area we both decided that a cat would be a good fit.  She is an 11 week old Bengal cat.  We bought her from a woman in Surprise, Arizona and have been told that both of her parents are Bengals.  She is pretty rambunctious and left me (Kristen) with around 3 hours of sleep last night.  Her main life focus is play, PLAY, play!  Her middle name will be Lexi, as that is what her original owner’s son had named her.


We are returning!

Hi friends and family. For those of you who knew about this page, we’ve been down for a few months. I’ve finally managed to get us back online, but it will take a while to get our stuff back up again. Thanks for being patient!
