Rustic Photography

Truckee, California

Here are some photos from my recent trip...

Welcome sign.

River at 5:00pm.

The old River Street Inn.

Brick painting in Downtown.

Old buildings of the Gold Rush.

A bear's scratching post. (Mom's house is about 20 yards behind. I teased her that they were marking their hibernation territory for this coming winter. Though I don't know much about bears and their tendencies... Mom did mention she saw 3 bears slowly meandering through her front yard a couple days ago, but was too much in awe watching from the kitchen window to grab her camera.)

Lovely magenta flowers.

Hope you're having a peaceful weekend!
