Birthday Girl

It's been quite an exhausting week with 3 straight days of driving 8-14 hours each, but I arrived on Saturday night to the beautiful town of Truckee. We celebrated my 7/11 birthday last night at The Cottonwood on the patio overlooking the rustic rail town.

P.s. Have you seen the new extreme photography show From The Edge with Peter Lik on The Weather Channel? I watched it on Wednesday night from my hotel in Flagstaff, AZ and they were shooting Death Valley, which I drove along the outskirts of on Thursday. Though I would have loooved to attempt photographing it, probably wouldn't have been smartest idea with my cat and long 14 hour drive.
But still there is a serene beauty to the desert. Maybe someday.
