The Cheney Fire
On June 26, a major thunderstorm with numerous lightning strikes rolled through our town of Susanville, California. The lightning started one fire, the Cheney Fire, that burned close enough to our neighborhood that it was evacuated for most of the day. Luckily, wind direction and a good downpour stopped the fire from causing any damage to the houses. One of the photographs made it into The Lassen County Times.

Photographs from our recent trip to San Francisco. Two days and two nights. Dropped off teenagers at the 2006 Warped Tour at Piers 30 and 32. Traipsed around the city visiting the Palace of the Legion of Honor, the de Young Museum, Golden Gate Park, and the Red Blossom Tea Company.

Truckee and Juniper Lake Camp Outs 2006
Two consecutive weekends. One over the Labor Day weekend. A one-night stay al0ng the Truckee River near Tahoe Lake. The other a quiet, near perfect night at Juniper Lake in Lassen Volcanic National Park. Bears in our dreams, and the comfort of the closeness of the stars in the night.
