Lizzie's Front Yard
I begin this post by telling you that I, apparently, have trouble reading the calendar. Earlier today, I posted about Presidents' Day. As it turns out, that is not until next Monday. I do have a day off today, but it is for Lincoln's Birthday. So, if you're wondering where that Presidents' Day post is, I'll re-post it next Monday! (Oh, life can be so very complicated at times...)
For today, I bring you what I have come to think of as Lizzie's Front Yard. This is more commonly known as Mt. Wilson Trail Park (aka Turtle Park), which houses both the Richardson House (seen in the photo) and Lizzie's Trail Inn. Lizzie's has been in this spot for many, many years, once serving ravioli and fried chicken to local hikers, and even some "distilled spirits" during prohibition. The two buildings now serve as museums, which can be visited on Saturdays. Click here for a bit more history about them.
See those hikers on the right? They have just come down from nearby Mt. Wilson. Not sure how far they went, but any distance on that trail is a challenge.
