A year ago today my lovely wife Penelope and I were also staying in San Francisco. She had just taken the nursing exam known as the NCLEX. We were both eagerly awaiting news of the results of her test, which are posted on the California Nursing Board's website. Early Valentines morning she woke me up excitedly and told me the wonderful news. She passed, my wonderful wife was a nurse!
My reaction: "BEST VALENTINES DAY EVER.... @peneloper IS A NURSE! SHE PASSED HER NCLEX!!!! WOHOOOOOO!!!!!!".
I just want you (and the whole world) to know how much I love you, sweetie. Thank you so much for your hard work, companionship and most importantly your sweet, caring love.

After driving through Emigrant Pass, we decided to take a side trip to Tucki Mine. The four-wheel drive road to the mine is about 9 miles long and fairly rough in some places. It was a nice drive on a beautiful canyon road, some of which was covered with snow. Once we reached the mine we ate lunch and checked out the cabin that the National Park Service keeps maintained for emergency use.
