Thursday Doors: Firehouse Nº12

Copyright ©2019 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I’ve admired this firehouse/station ever since we started looking to buy a house in Carson Valley back in 2016, and I’ve been planning to photograph it with some clouds and color since moving into our house this Spring.  Finally, we got some clouds that looked like they might hold some color so I grabbed my camera, tripod, keys, wallet, and a spare battery and headed to the firehouse.  There was some color!

Firehouse Nº12

This is probably the firehouse that would service my neighborhood, but other than it being one of the nicest looking fire stations I’ve seen I know nothing about it.

The sunset colors were stunning the other night and luckily He-Man and I were out for an evening walk in the neighborhood when I admired not for the first time this lovely corner green door with a wreath and the gorgeous sky above it. I had to snap a photo for Thursday Doors!

Whatever Wednesday- Storm Clouds over Job’s Peak

Job's Peak under Clouds

The view from my backyard all week has been cloudy with some rain.  In between He-Man and I have gone out hiking twice each time on a new trail.  If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen some images of the trail there.

Our hike on Monday was a 5.3-mile loop that wiped me out.  In Silicon Valley, I lived 257 ft above sea level. Here I’m 4,750 ft above sea level and the hike took us up to nearly 6,000 feet.  I was huffing and puffing and light-headed for most of it.  I am out of shape and not used to this elevation yet. A sinus infection and plugged ears didn’t help, but I hope this summer’s hikes get me ready for snow-shoeing this winter!

The weather may be unsettled here this week, but we are settled and on the road to discovering new trails and sights.  I hope you’re feeling settled in and finding some time to enjoy the outdoors this week.

I had the pleasure of observing the last night’s sunset on the coast with friends.

It was a warm, peaceful, beautiful evening.

Sunset Blues

After a day of birding my friends and I closed the day watching the sun dip behind the mountains from the far side of a pond. It was lovely.

We’ve had a stormy few days here in the San Francisco Bay Area with welcome rain.  In between breaks in the storm I headed to the coast for sunset.  The sun broke out of the clouds for a short time bathing Lighthouse Point, and W. Santa Cruz in glorious sunshine.
