The creative team at Trails and Vistas is gearing up for art hike surprises during The Dreaming Tree on Sept. 8 and 9. This year the majority of art hikes will emphasize the splendor of art in nature through silence. Along the trail, not a word will be spoken as the breeze picks up, the water ripples and bodies move under the sun. Your guide will lead the way as your heart and senses tune into your surroundings and the original dance and music performances along the trail on Donner Summit. But, do not fear! Children, parents and anyone seeking a bit of conversation are encouraged to attend any one of the family hikes offered on Saturday and Sunday.
The Truckee Donner Historical Society is hosting a new railroad exhibit at the Old Jail Museum which is open from 5 to 7 p.m. during Truckee Thursdays as well as on summer weekends. Though we've ventured inside the jail during past walking tours, you might feel less afraid during the warm days of summer.
We've been busy selecting our haunts for 2012. Prepare to get spooked! Tickets will be available beginning Friday, September 7.
