My Blog--Series: From Sea to Shining Sea, part 11.
This is the valley floor which has a saline lake that is about four inches deep and 120 miles long. This is looking from the California side of the lake to the Oregon mountains on the other side. When there is a drought, that lake disappears.
This is looking across the lake on a beautiful day, toward the Nevada mountain range.
This is half of Cedarville downtown. The residential part of town (about 50 houses) is tucked into the California side among groves of trees.
Donna, Mike, Kevin, Lorin, Cassie, Jackie and Eric, Charlotte, Kirstin , Can, John and Jess Wright were all there when we arrived for Thanksgiving. Everybody had driven 16 or 12or 7 hours or five days to get to Cedarville for Thanksgiving. We sat around and told lies and ate Mexican food for Thanksgiving dinner. We celebrated my and Darrel's anniversary again, and Kirstin's birthday. Then we took five minutes to tour Cedarville, then had a constant game going on for several days in the center of the dining room table. It was 40 degrees and snowing outside. Two days ago we were all dying from the heat. We parked the Coyote at the fairground, which doubles as an RV park when there are no rodeos in town. But the wedding pavillion will be busy Saturday night.
