We picked up our goods and headed West. While we still have a condo downtown Minneapolis, our new home is Calistoga, CA.

The top picture is from our deck in Lake Elmo looking out at Downs Lake. We even have this panorama in our den out here as a fond memory of the 20+ years in this beautiful space. We are happy that a wonderful family now lives there and the kids are growing up with nature at their doorstep.

The next picture is us in front of our place in Calistoga. We settled in this great community and love it. We can walk almost everywhere.

My photography keeps me busy more than ever. Tate a look at the photo site or the blog if you want some commentary.
