Malcolm and Percy at the Knitting Factory

They sure were happy to stretch their legs after arriving.

First stop was a trip to Beautiful Lake Mendocino in California. We had a family reunion to attend and Malcolm and Percy went along for the ride. On the way home they visited the "Donner Trail Memorial". The Donner Party were a group of pioneers in search of gold in California in 1846 but got stopped by the heavy snows of the Sierra Nevadas and resorted to cannibalism to survive the worst winter in over 100 years.
Next stop was a refreshing splash in the Truckee River with a little friend that wouldn't let him go.

As they traveled into the city they discovered the Knitting Factory. You would think that this had something to do with Knitting, but NOPE! But you can see Willie Nelson and Smashing Pumpkins if you come to the Knitting Factory in Reno. It was a beautiful summer day and they had a blast! Now they are off to St. Louis! Bye fellas, have a good trip!
