Wildlife conservation

Our California mini-visit was so special I’ll be adding a page above, probably after we get home later this week. But this couple of days has been on environmental education, as we’ve come to the Lake Tahoe/Reno area to see B.

We finally get a tour of the camp where Sierra Nevada Journeys provides its excellent programming, and the area is breathtaking:

We took the tour and learned about how hundreds of California and Nevada children each year experience the learning that will take them into the next century. It’s clear B is heart and soul attached to this program:

And her boss and co-workers make it clear they agree. It is wonderful to see her so well- appreciated…

We also see the Biggest Little City in the World:

We have several delicious meals and then all too soon it’s time to head east again! B and her friend C have agreed to drive with us, for which I am more grateful that I can express. I’m all about being independent, but it takes a lot out of you to travel as a single mom!

We came across the Great Salt Flats:

And in Salt Lake City, the Mormon Temple the day before the city is to be invaded by the General Assembly of Unitarian Universalists…

Finally, we went to ground for the night but not before one last moment of drama, as B managed to avoid hitting a full grown moose in the middle of I-15. It was a thing of beauty. And so is she.
