Mohawk Valley Independence Day Celebration 2014

Michael Clawson - Friday, June 06, 2014

I am writing this post on the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Invasion of Normandy, years long ago, but never forgotten. Though it may sound cliché, the truth is, I might not be writing this post if the outcome during this epic event was different. Those heroes, who sacrificed their lives for the cause, changed the world for all of us, forever. For that, may they never be forgotten, but honored as we plan to do this year in our Mohawk Valley Independence Day 2014 Celebration, featuring the theme, “Honoring Our Veterans.” Read More

Graeagle.com Goes Mobile

Michael Clawson - Sunday, January 06, 2013

If you have been a regular user of our website, and subscriber to our monthly news letter, you are probably wondering what happened to our ‘always prompt’ first of the month newsletter. Well, the truth is, we typically post our January news after the first, because of New Year’s Day. However, the extra delay to getting our news into your email inbox is because we wanted to finalize our new mobile version of our website. In other words, you can now view graeagle.com in a more compact and readable mobile format on your smart phone. Why did we do this? Well, the facts are in, and mobile is set to dominate the web this year. In fact, did you know that more people are actually purchasing mobile devices, like phones and tablets, more than desktop computers? Realizing this trend, we felt it was important for graeagle.com to lead the way into this growing frontier. Many of our visitors are coming from out of town, and typically have some type of mobile device with them. So, with the ever-increasing cellular Internet speeds now currently available in our region, we felt it was important to deliver a better experience for our mobile users. While not every part of our website is available in a mobile format (though we are working to convert the entire site to mobile compatibility), most of our essential information is now available in a mobile design. Please take a look at our site on your smartphone and let us know what you think. As always, we appreciate your feedback. Thanks for your continued support of our website! Read More

Sixteen Years of Sharing Graeagle, California

Michael Clawson - Friday, November 30, 2012

So, here we are in our 16th year of sharing our passion about Graeagle, California and the beautiful surrounding area, and I look back at how far we have come since the first day we decided to run with this idea. Back then; it was just a few years after the web had been opened to commerce, so nobody really understood what the World Wide Web was about. I remember telling my local clients that I had this fantastic idea to link up their businesses with our site, so other people around the world could see the magic of Graeagle. It was a bit of a hard sell, and only a few of my clients were ready to give it a go. I worked on making the pricing right and gave away a lot of my time to make sure everyone was really satisfied with his or her piece of the ‘Web’ on our site. Back then; we sold pages on our site. You could buy a single page or a multipage section on our website and not worry about paying for hosting or managing a domain. It made sense at the time, and that’s how graeagle.com began to grow as a community travel oriented website.  Read More

Shopping in Graeagle is in the Bag

Patty Clawson - Sunday, September 30, 2012

Briar Patch Floral Scented Product Line- Photo Patty ClawsonI’m not entirely sure what the working definition of a shopaholic might be, but I probably come close to the classification when it comes to shopping the boutique stores in downtown Graeagle. I’ll admit it, there are a couple of stores, and okay maybe more than a couple, that I just can’t stay away from. And peering into the window just doesn’t cut it.

Artistic Musings from Young Minds

Patty Clawson - Monday, May 14, 2012

Student Exhibit at Red House Art GalleryIt seems a bit understated, that little art gallery situated beneath the tall pines across the green in downtown Graeagle.  On the roof, a large sign displays the name “Red House Art” and it has an entrance flanked by metal sculptures and a prominent free standing mobile that whirls in the wind as if to greet you.  Read More

Spring Arrives in Graeagle

Sun And Snowshoes

Michael Clawson - Friday, January 06, 2012
Winter in the Sierras this year has been unusually dry; there has been little snow, and more days that feel like spring than like winter. This means, among other things, that a rare set of conditions has held: Gold Lake Road, which is not plowed during the winter, is still open, giving us access to hiking trails much higher up than normally, but there is (or was at Thanksgiving) still enough snow left from the early storms on those trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. So during Thanksgiving weekend my mom and I borrowed some snowshoes, loaded the dog into the car, and headed up the mountain for an afternoon in the snow.

We started at the Round Lake Trailhead, and found that the old snow, which would have been too heavy and sticky for comfortable skiing, was easy to negotiate in snowshoes. The dog had a harder time of it, but his enthusiasm was up to the challenge. Read More
