Loyalton Firemen’s Street Festival ~ 25 August 2012

On the way home from Portola’s Train Days last weekend, I saw a sign that Loyalton was going to have a Street Festival with a Show & Shine the following weekend. 🙂 I Love Sierra Valley and you have to like a festival that raises money for the Volunteer Fire Department. My husband was excited that they were having a horseshoe tourney and luck would have it another guy needed a partner, so he got to play. It was a fun day full of old cars, arts and crafts, music, monster truck rides, horseshoes, and good food.

Have lots of pictures from the day ~

Shelby Cobra Mustang

Care Flight made a grand dust storm entrance!

Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen Quilt ~ Love it!!!

John…we were under the Horseshoe Tourney tent.

The band…before a wind gust took the canopy…and the band played on. 🙂

Is this not a cool horseshoe pit or what?!

First and Second place teams.

Monster Truck rides…ok, that was one fun ride for $5.

Kid in middle doesn’t agree with me…but his grampa had a blast.

My Favorite Barn just outside of Loyalton, California

I’m not sure who owns my favorite barn in Sierra Valley, just west of Loyalton before you get to Sierraville….but I love her. We were up there taking a drive and hiking around on Sunday ~ here are the latest pictures.

Here is the view of the valley that she gazes upon ~ looking NW.

Here she is last year filled to the rim with hay ~ sun setting on her giving off a very nice warm glow. Can you see the hawk sitting on top of her? Here is the painting that Sue of Perpetualplum painted of the picture below ~
