The land of Jumping Frogs

We are visiting good friends near Murphys, in Calaveras County (approximate map). They have ample parking for Odyssey on their ranch, where they raise champion Quarter Horses as well as other livestock. It is lovely here, an idyllic little valley with a swift-running stream, nestled in highly forested hills.

On our way up here yesterday, after leaving the fairgrounds, we drove through historic Angels Camp, which is gearing up for the annual fair (and jumping frog jubilee) in just two weeks' time. Tomorrow we will have to backtrack through Angels Camp and take CA49 up to CA88 through the Carson Pass, as Ebbett's pass east of here on CA4 is still closed for the winter.

Tomorrow night we should be at the Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno, where I'll attend EmComm West on Saturday. While we're in town, we will try to get together with friends in the Reno area before continuing north toward Oregon.
