You Can Take the Boy Out of California, But You Can't Take California…

I love getting out of California, but I love getting back. From a Southwest Airlines flight, here is a view of the Rockies as we head west. Then, later, some only-in-America gorgeous canyon lands.

As we pass lake Tahoe and get to Sacramento, my heart skips a beat as I see the gentle green hills of California: with all her faults I love her still.

  1. Hi Lloyd

    Just wanted to drop a line and let you know that I have purchased the hobit house by Lloyd House on Egale Island in BC. You featured the house in your book. I plan on doing a correct restoration on the house over next few years, along with some off-grid energy solutions. If you come back to BC drop by the house.
