My wife and I moved to the Sierra Nevada in preparation for retirement. We enjoy camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, and square dancing.
We have had dogs in the past but currently have no pets.
We live in Arnold, a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Calaveras Big Trees State Park is about 6 miles from where. Here you can hike among giant redwood Sequoia trees. The town of Murphys is about 10 miles away where many fine wineries and tasting rooms can be found.
