On Sunday, we picnicked and hiked at Lyons Lake Dam, one of our absolutely favorite spots in Tuolumne County.

The forest around the lake has both a tranquil quality...and a subtle sense of a David Lynch silence haunting the spaces between the trees.
Our children love it here - and so does our dog, Husky Go-Go ("go-go" is Mandarin for "dog;" she is seen running in the video above), whose first major excursion off the leash led to a wild run back and forth through the trees and the water. Total abandonment and joy.
|A heartwarming welcome.|
