Alder Creek Bad News

Issued today: “Due to the physical constraints of this very difficult operation, the estimated opening date (subject to change) is now four to eight weeks from today.”

Four weeks “from today” is June 1st. Eight weeks is June 29th. Plan accordingly – as in Rock Bob’s memorial is looking like July or thereabouts. Oh, darn. I just remembered the workers I hired and pre-paid for supplies; and the water tank I pre-paid for delivery from Loomis. I have several thousands of dollars out for things I cannot get until July, now. Darn.

Tin House Art

*PHOTO CONTEST* Submit your photo of what Big Sur means to you, by midnight on Memorial Day. As usual, the winning photo will be featured on my banner, so it must be in landscape format. Readers will vote and choose their favorite.

A reader from the UK, with family here in Big Sur, recently visited and sent me these photos taken at the Tin House. Abstract photo art that is really lovely.

Before I post those, however, you might want to wander over to this great new blog I found that details hikes in Big Sur. In particular, I would refer you to the post about the Tanbark Trail leading to the Tin House. There are lots of photos of the trail, and the house as it stands.

I like this one so much, it is going into my links to the right. Full of great information!
