Gathering at the MainStage Clearing

On Sunday we went out to the Paramount Ranch in Agoura, California for the annual Renaissance Faire Reunion and it was a beautiful day!

We saw old friends and walked the site.

We uploaded about 200 new pics of people and places from the past and from our Sunday adventure. Everything was very green! It was cloudy and then clear, so there are a lot of great pics from the gathering.

17626633_1746500158709876_453907062065759782_n

Lots of old friends! When we arrived at the MainStage Clearing there were already a lot of old Faire folks gathered together. Some people were seated and having picnics and others were standing and talking. We said hello to our friends as we walked up the hill and almost at the same time the musicians began to play old Faire songs while others grouped around them and began to sing along.

Friends of the Paramount Ranch – “Huzzah! The Glove is Up Again!”

Billy and Richard announced that they had created “Friends of the Paramount Ranch”

The “Friends of Paramount Ranch” is now a non-profit under Ernie Fishbach’s corporate umbrella and the Park Service wants to add the history of the Ren Faire to the official Paramount Ranch history (or something like that, watch the video – contact Billy Scudder or Richard Beard for all the details if you want to volunteer)

NOTE: There was some action, and then they went dark. Not sure what is happening with “Friends of the Paramount Ranch” as of February 11, 2018.

Yosemite Mariposa Grove Fallen Monarch

  • The Fallen Monarch: A tree that fell more than 300 years ago. Giant sequoias are resistant to decay, so their remains can linger for a long period of time if undisturbed.

The Mariposa Grove is a sequoia grove located near Wawona, California, in the southernmost part of Yosemite National Park. It is the largest grove of Giant Sequoias in the park, with several hundred mature examples of the tree. Two of its trees are among the 30 largest Giant Sequoias in the world. The area was first visited by non-natives in 1857 when Galen Clark and Milton Mann found it. They named the grove after Mariposa County where the grove is located.

NOTE: Mariposa Grove is CLOSED FOR RESTORATION until spring 2017!
