The Eastside’s most ephemeral sport in full swing

On an unusually warm midwinter day, Juan Lopez swung into the ice with the hard-earned familiarity of years of working construction.

A veteran of a battle against diabetes and holding a laundry list of prescription medications, Lopez, 43, of Woodlake, said he was looking for moderation. He found it by climbing ice.

Fido & Me - The Week that Was

February 15, 2013

 

“Wotta week!” Fido said.

“Yes, it sure was. You must be exhausted, Old Sport.”

“That’s OK, because I’m a dog, and even when we’re exhausted, if there is still a little bit of fuel in the tank, we can keep on going.”

“Well put. Humans aren’t quite like that, and the older they get, well, you know. Did you have a favorite part?”

Fido showed no hesitation. He wagged his stump.

“Foolsday was my favorite part!”

February 8, 2013

 

“That’s quite a get-up,” I said to Fido.  “What’s up with the beads?”

“Let’s dance!”

“What?”

Fido got up on his hind legs and did a little jig.

“Is that really a jig?”

“Heck no! It’s a Fido-doh. A dance just for me-me-me.”

“Something tells me a cup of coffee would be a good thing right about now.”

Fido & Me - Dinner Party!

January 25, 2013

 

“Whatcha makin’ up there?” Fido wanted to know.

The Beeg Boy lay underfoot, as is usual when I’m in the kitchen. He’s always interested in what is on the chopping block.

“I’m chopping stuff for tonight’s dinner party.”

“A DINNER PARTY? Hey hey hey hey! I love-love-love dinner parties!”

“Me too, Fido. A great dinner for others is a gift—an act of love. Chef Marc says that, and I totally agree with him.”

Cross country skiing in June Lake

January 18, 2013

 

In the wake of what could have been a devastating blow to the small community of June Lake, creativity spurred of necessity could be an unexpected boon.

With June Mountain closed this year, the owners of Double Eagle Resort and Spa decided to groom cross country ski track on their ranch property across the street from the spa—adding one more reason to visit June Lake.

I have lived many places on the Eastside for the past several years, but this year I decided to move to June Lake, mainly for the winter recreation opportunities.

The Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep has the unique distinction of being the only endangered bighorn subspecies of three in the United States.

The population dropped to 100 individuals in the 1990s, but has since rebounded, and hit 500 individuals in 2012, spurring optimism for the continued growth and recovery of this rare and unique megafauna.
