Carson Valley Correspondence – April 2018

Heritage: The word “heritage” as a noun, is defined as “something that is handed down from the past, as a tradition.”  As an adjective it is defined as “noting or relating to a product, place, etc., that evokes a nostalgic sense of tradition or history”.  And there you have it, an ideal description of Carson Valley and within it, the town of Genoa. I imagine most people are proud of their heritage, whether it is their nationality or where they ...

Spring Gardening The snow is melting, the ground is thawing, and it is time to head outside and do a little gardening. My favorite place for plants and gardening supplies is Colorscapes in Lamoille. Marvel Clyde has been operating this nursery for years and I've always been happy with the variety and quality of plants that are sourced for the high desert growing conditions. In addition, her knowledge and advice for gardening in our climate is terrific. Colorscapes is open ...

Your tee time is at 9 a.m., so you have time to get a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop or even eat breakfast at Mom's Diner before you take in 18 challenging holes. Well, you ...
