About me

Gender MALE
Industry Law
Location Sierra Nevada Mountains, California, United States
Introduction I am a political junkie who works in the capital of California, and cannot wait to leave the daily bedlam of the valley for my rustic cabin at the 4,000-foot elevation in the Sierra Nevada mountains. My interest in railroads has led to a rekindled interest in photography, video and history. Few things are as impressive as having 15,000+ horsepower pass by my home in Run 8, hence my interest in the Central, Southern and Union Pacific Railroads. One of the purposes of this blog is to display my photographic documentation of the Roseville Sub, specifically the Donner Pass area, as it exists now and in the past. My current challenge is to provide you with views, photos and videos that few people would dare to proffer, placing me in frequent danger. On the other hand, after 6 decades, I'm ready for each and every challenge. Unless otherwise credited, all photographs are copyright (c) 2014 by the blog author.
Interests Politics, photography, video, history, hiking, politics, chasing the elusive locomotive
