Hiking in the mountains in Incline Village, Nevada will build your muscles including the heart and enriched your mind. Maybe even your soul. Last Saturday and Sunday we met other walkers and mountain bikers. Stones and boulders are strewn everywhere. The trail have switchbacks in some areas. There are two view points to see Lake Tahoe.
With a glimpse and a walk, a pond and the sea calm my soul.
note: Finished reading the Forest Dark by Nicole Krauss. Trying to finish Braving It by James Campbell, a father and daughter story.
veraison starts in the vines
note: Mrs. Abstract and I and five new friends whom we met at the River Cruise last June enjoyed wine tasting today at the Sullivan Vineyards & Winery in St. Helena, CA. Sullivan Vineyards & Winery is known for the “big reds”: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and Bordeaux blend.It offers also Sauvignon blanc & chardonnay.

Me, walking to the river.
The path to the river.
note: A neighbor gave us daffodil buds a few days ago.
I stopped by to look
at the crab apple and swollen river
I could not resist
to take some pictures
pardon my lack of experience.
