Holiday Cheers

Winter weather has come early this year in Kernville. We are already measuring a little over 70% of the April 1 Snowpack in the Southern portion of the Sierra. In the middle of the month we were boating on high water; at the end of the month the snow levels dropped, so it was time to break out the skis. We got a couple of nice adventures in; one on Christmas Eve and another on New Year's Eve. We just wanted to share a couple of pictures celebrating the close of 2010 with good friends and an amazing place we are lucky enough to call home.

Merry Christmas Rick!

Rebecca and Rick are both expecting?!

Unlike the trees themselves, seeing Giant sequoia's never gets old.
