Blueberry Peach Crisp

It's about that time of year where we're in between seasons- its still warm enough to rock your summer clothes but the days are getting shorter and the summer fruits and veggies just aren't what they used to be a few weeks ago...
Yesterday, I took advantage of some of the last summer fruits and made this yummy Blueberry Peach Crisp! I will definitely make this recipe again but, with a few alterations. Overall though, I think the crisp turned out really well! As for the difficulty, this recipe is so simple and easy-perfect for any new baker!

Herringtons Sierra Pines Resort

Last week I stayed at Herringtons Sierra Pines in Sierra City... This place is a great mountain getaway spot for families and also couples ... We actually spent part of our honeymoon here ... The restaurant there serves  one of the best Filet Mignon plates that I have ever had ...  This year we stayed in the Pond level cabin which is across the Lawn from the Trout Pond which also has two fountains flowing in the middle of it ... This room is unique because of its views ... The front door looks out across the trout pond and right up from the base of the the Sierra Buttes ...Here is a shot of the view out the front door...
The back patio deck looks out over the Yuba River which is very pretty and there is a big waterfall that flows down the mountainside  into the river right across the ravine ...Here are a couple of shots showing the river out back of the resort ...
There are many many trout in the pond out front at Herringtons ... This pond is a pay pond and you pay by the size of the fish you catch ... No fish exceeds $20  but that is for a Salmon sized one ...If you have a kid or kids that have never caught a fish then this place is for you ! They will not leave this experience empty handed ...Or Even if you are an adult who has never experienced the feeling of fighting a nice big fresh Rainbow Trout on the end of your line  you will definitely enjoy this place ...
Some of the fish in this pond are huge ! All of the fish in this pond are Rainbows and they are beautiful fresh mountain trout !
I myself do not fish in this pond but if the kids haven't caught anything in the lakes and streams by the time we leave we always let em fish here for that guaranteed lunker ...Here is a quick video showing me getting some fish food from the dispenser there and feeding the trout...
  This year at Herringtons was special for us in many ways but one thing that we will always remember was that this year our little girl caught her first fishy and she is only two... She pulled and pulled and reeled and reeled saying fishy fishy the whole time ! It was a fifteen inch Rainbow Trout that we ate the next night ... What a great memory !  Herringtons Sierra Pines Resort and Trout Pond is not open in the Winter so if this looks like fun you better get yourself up there soon !  Here is their link Herringtons Sierra Pines

Holy Colored Pencils


Wa wa wee wa, these are amazing!

Jennifer Maestre, a Michigan-based artist, has been creating sculptures out of colored pencils since 1999 and doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon. These unique masterpieces are sold exclusively through Mobilia Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I'm still in awe...how do you come up with something like that?

Too Funny

{All images Fred Flare}


Really? I'm thinking these are a great investment...even if just for the conversations they would start.

These giant earbud speakers from Fred Flare are so creative. Perfect for any desk, table or even your office cubicle, these puppies are sure to get the party started. The price isn't bad either- I would totally pay $60 for my own set of oversized headphones.

What do you think?

4 Wheelin Tamarack Lakes

 Tamarack Lakes are located up above Packer Lake on the north side of the Sierra Buttes... These lakes can only be visited by 4wd or hiking up ... The trailhead from Packer Lake Lodge Road heads up the mountain  about 3 miles into the wilderness... This is Lower Tamarack Lake ...
What a beautifully serene alpine lake ... The 4wd trail leading up to these lakes is full of large rocks and it is a really fun ride up ... Here is a video clip of the road conditions and some of the surrounding terrain ...
 Not the best video because I was holding the camera and driving over big rocks... These next shots are of Upper Tamarack Lake...
 Though they look similar  but the upper lake is even more clear than the lower ...  It seems as if the lower lake acts as a kidney or filter for the upper lake, having more of a reddish color on the bottom... .Upper Tamarack Lake was a bit more pristine as well being about a mile further up the mountain ...
There were these large patches of wild flowers growing all along the northern shoreline thriving just outside the water grass on the marsh like  banks ...
I have been coming up to these mountains nearly all of my life and never made it up to Tamarack Lakes until now ... I had always heard it was an awesome experience to be that high up on the Buttes at these totally secluded alpine lakes , but being there is another thing entirely...
