“The mountains are calling and I must go.”
― John Muir
I’m an aging baby boomer and empty nester married to the girl I’m still passionately in love with. We have three grown children, two Golden Retrievers, and five acres in the Sierra Nevada Foothills located in a town called Tuolumne. After a blessed life in the San Francisco Bay Area raising our family we packed up suburbia and moved to the mountains.
This is a blog about a romantic vision I’ve had since I was in my early twenties and spent a night in the mountains at a friends house. I still remember it as the best night sleep of my life and ever since then always thought that one day I would live in the mountains. It’s a blog about embracing our new lives away from suburbia with our two dogs Kali and Kloe.
So why The Golden K?
We’re dog people. Kali is a seven year old Golden Retriever we adopted in 2014. Kloe is a 3 month old Golden Retriever we adopted shortly before we moved. “The Golden K” is what I call our new mountain retreat and home. It’s named in honor of our Golden Kali who we’ve learned so much from, and for Kloe who represents the brightest of futures for all of us through her unbridled enthusiasm for life.
The Golden K is a blog about a romantic perspective living at 3100 feet with some of those I love most.
