The blog I wrote today is not really about the wildflowers in Death Valley, although I included a bunch of photographs we shot of wildflowers on a hillside around 3,000 feet in elevation. Most of the wildflowers in Death Valley have already bloomed and died back this year, because the weather is ...

Everybody we talked to, including the park rangers, warned us that the trip to The Racetrack would take at least 8 hours, and we probably should not drive down that gravel road all by ourselves. Since driving that winding road would mean I would have to rent a jeep and drive it because my husband...

The one thing I have discovered since coming to Death Valley is there are more things to see and do than a person can probably accomplish in 5 or 6 trips to this remarkable National Park. Yet, we're trying to squeeze in as many attractions and serious photography as possible. Of course, everybody...

To say I was unprepared for the beauty and spectacular views in 20 Mule Team Canyon would be a gross understatement. It would be like saying I sell only a few homes a year  in Sacramento. The place is incredible, and it's only the beginning of our adventure here in Death Valley National Park. I a...

I'm hearing Sheryl Crow in my head and we aren't yet out of our hotel room, yet I can't help being excited about leaving Las Vegas. I've had my share of slot machines and woozy nights decades ago, and now I am thrilled to be going to Death Valley. More about that tomorrow . . . which involves Bla...

The company my transaction coordinator works for recently raised the rates my TC charges. Her fee went up about 10%. She hasn't had a raise during all of the years she has worked with me. I pay her fee and I do not charge my clients for it. Years ago I used to work that small fee into the paperwo...

I wouldn't be surprised to discover there is a bug on my car. You know, the kind of GPS bug somebody could plant that follows my travels, because everybody in Sacramento knows that I rarely leave my home office unless I'm going out to list a home in Elk Grove or elsewhere. I wouldn't be astonishe...

I often use the phrase, "just when you think you've seen it all," because there are days my mouth hangs open and bugs fly inside. There are also the days I bang my head on my desk and stop because it feels so good to stop. Just when I figure there is nothing else that can astonish or amaze, I'll ...

We can be so busy with our work in Sacramento real estate that we could completely miss the first few days of it being officially spring, a mistake I have made in previous years but elected not to do yesterday. It was a beautiful day in Sacramento, with a high of 71. One more degree and it would ...

Most home sellers are out-of-touch with the real estate market. They either talk about something that happened a year ago, which has no bearing on today's market, or they compare oranges to apples -- homes that have zero in common with their own. The first place many sellers go online to look at ...
