As the sun sets it bathes the nearby mountains in a warm glow. The light bounces off the white surface filling the deep shadows within the trees. The Upper Truckee River meanders through a maze of fresh snow leading to unknown adventures. It is cold and warm at the same time and, as I lose myself in wilderness, I think how I could be on some far away expedition, perhaps in some remote faraway mountains, but I'm not, I'm here, just steps from my back door. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Christmas Valley. Come...enjoy the adventure.
