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

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

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

Skiing at Johnsville

Michael Clawson - Friday, January 06, 2012

I don’t remember first learning to ski. It’s one of those things that I feel like I’ve always known how to do. But I do know where I learned , because it’s the same place I skied for the majority of my childhood: Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl at Johnsville. Read More
