There’s something about having a wall clock that is both comforting and terrifying. When you’re constantly aware of the time, minutes seem to drag on like years. If you’d prefer to view the time only when you feel like it instead of having it constantly within your field of vision, the Click Wall Clock may be able to help. While this seemingly blank wooden circle will add some warmth to your work space, it can also be a digital LED clock that will reveal the time in green digits whenever you snap your fingers. This is no paltry purchase, coming in at $90-100. If this doesn’t fit your aesthetic, there are always other clocks that are certain to dazzle any who enter your domain. Of course, none of us really need a wall clock what with smartphones sitting in our pockets, digital time on our computer screens, and time pieces on our wrist , but what’s one more clock in a sea of time-telling devices.
In the fall of 2004, for instance, Sierra Pacific Industries drove their bulldozers up and down the Big Granite Trail, south of Cisco Grove. They may as well have dropped a bomb on that lovely old trail, still marked with its "small i" Forest Service blazes, on the trees which remain. We can and should turn back the clock. We can volunteer our time and efforts to maintain historic trails, in these days of budget crunches, when the agencies which administer our public lands (Tahoe National Forest [TNF], and the Bureau of Land Management [BLM]) are so strapped for... Indian Trails and Emigrant Roads. the Donner Trail, for instance, follows the line of a pre-existing Indian trail which crossed the Sierra. Petroglyphs along the Donner Trail suggest it was used by the Martis Culture, of 4500-1500 years ago. it is likely that paleo-Indians used this trail ten thousand years ago. An Indian trail branched from the main Donner trail at Emigrant Gap and, rather than dropping into Bear Valley, stayed on the ridge and followed along southwest though what would become Alta, Dutch Flat, Gold Run, Illinoistown, and Auburn, all the...
