The building behind was started by the previous resident, an eccentric spinster named Ginty Paul.  It was meant to be a lodge for recovering alcoholics.  Ginty died before her dream was completed, and the only thing that lives there now is packrats.  I call it the Packrat Palace.

As soon as we reached Highway 20 on our way to the Tatla Lake monthly book club, spring was more evident.
