April 2018
My pup and I hiked seven miles to find the perfect spot for a little Ponderosa Pine to start its new life in Northrup Canyon. As an Earth Day tradition we’ll come visit it every year and plant it a new friend to keep it company. The trail was hot even in April and it was my first encounter with a Rattle Snake. In fact we saw a gopher snake and water snake as well on our hike that day.

Keep in mind it is only 3 miles to the homestead and back. If you want to see the lake you'll have to add on another four all together for seven miles total round trip.
