A reflection of Sierra Beauty in Wood and Glass

One of my real pleasures is meeting the people who live in and around the Sierra. I find myself hitch-hiking into the Sierra to begin trips, out of the Sierra at the end of trips, and from point-to-point to resupply during trips. I meet the best people hitching the Sierra.

While collecting information to build this guide and walking the Tahoe to Yosemite Trail in 2009 I decided to hitch from Ebbetts Pass on Highway 4 down to Lake Alpine, Bear Valley, and Arnold to collect information on local resources along Highway 4.

The real joy of the trip was meeting all the local color that picked me up. Hitching back I met Bill Poulson, who along with his wife, are stained glass and wood artists who operate a studio based in Arnold.

I really enjoyed talking to Bill. We pulled over and finished our conversation where he let me off. 

I think you may enjoy his glass art. Check out the subsequent pages on his site for his work depicting the Sierra.
