July 3 - Vacation Procession

More Journal work and orchestration of The Opera of Daniel: VI. The Procession of Darius, before heading out the door with Harriet to visit Megan and Mike in Reno, on this extended Fourth of July weekend, stopping for coffee and news in Auburn / Forestville Road and proceding through the evergreens to the

expansive cumulus-building arenas of

Emigrant and

Yuba Gaps,

with burnt sticks

and broken stones,

over Donner Summit with looks back at the


descending the Grade towards

the Lake.

Through Truckee Meadows and

Canyon, and soon we are delightfully engaged for an afternoon and evening, checking in late at a place in Carson City with internet access and other nocturnal diversions.
