We want to take our dogs on a weekday, three- or four-day road trip up to the snow while it's there. We're pondering the Sierra from Yosemite north, and the Cascades from Lassen to Shasta. Doesn't have to be total high-Sierra experience, upper foothills are fine. We just need a place where our two dogs are welcome in the room with us, that we can get to without a Toyota Landcruiser equipped with spiked chains and survival gear.

Ideas? Suggestions? Cabins that might be free on a couple of weeks' notice?

Cooler weather allows progress on Calif. wildfires
By AMANDA FEHD The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - Cooler weather with higher humidity Tuesday has allowed fire crews to get a better handle on wildfires across the state.
More than three weeks after 1,781 separate blazes were sparked during a lightning storm, most of them have been extinguished, and some of the biggest fires are nearing containment, officials said.

California's fires: google map
Bay Area air quality

These will change, eventually.

Currently, the fire map says "LOTS!" and the air map is mostly yellows (icky) through Saturday, then, barring another big local fire, it'll become more green (tolerable).

It was just snoozin' . . .

With a crowd of anxious neighbors waiting at the end of an alley on Euclid Avenue, wildlife officers Thursday afternoon tranquilized a 110-pound mountain lion spotted relaxing under a porch in the backyard of a Boulder home.
