Summer is here and days are sweltering, but the Gallery is tucked into the cool shade of the forest, on the side of Hick’s Creek, now dry–no more swimming. The trees seem taller and denser than ever on our trails up the side of the mountain. We now have 2 lovely trails with markers for you nature lovers. A new firing with my hops mugs will be out soon, along with the new ceramic markers for the Hemlock Grove Trail. Don’t forget we are open from 10 am till 5 pm on weekends this summer. Not only can you enjoy the Gallery (our only air conditioned building), but you can hike the easy nature trails through the forest, picnic on the rocks along the trails, and tour our permaculture gardens and solar-powered hand-crafted houses (please call ahead to arrange a tour).
