The April Wildcat Studio Nude Workshop is SOLD OUT! We still have availability for September!
Well, we have had a hell of a time these past few weeks here at Wildcat Hill! A fire started south of us in the Garrapata State Park on the Soberanes Trail. Some of you know of it and have hiked it many times! Our first scare was that it was going to burn down Cole's house (Kim's father's property) in Garrapata Canyon. We were out of town at a wedding and didn't get home until very late and by that time the driveway was blocked and an evacuation was in progress. A family member drove down and persuaded the personal that was guarding the road to let him in and he was able to retrieve some of our belongings. We sat on pins and needles and then we were lucky that it was spared. Then the fire started coming north and then west. It was so close to the headwaters of Wildcat Canyon! I was totally freaked out. Many of our friends lost their homes in Palo Colorado Canyon. The feeling of loss has been overwhelming and so sad. We are fine out of danger, but the fire is still burning east and south of us and we have good friends in both of these areas.
Thank you so much for our stay at the Bodie House, in the very interesting Monterey Bay area. We have enjoyed learning a little about the exploits of the Weston's through your collection of books and other "stuff".
All the best for the future,
From Kathleen and Neale Melbourne, Australia
Thank you for a wonderful stay - 3 nights @ "Wildcat Hill" The Bodie House was a high point on a California trip, full of beauty and delights. Seeing Edward Weston's home and darkroom was something I will always hold onto and be inspired by. Our best to your family if we're ever back within 300 miles of California, I hope to be back.

Gina and Kim,
Both gorgeous and serene; full of memories (history!) and vision. It's been a joy for a photographer and his wife to stay at Bodie House. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

To Kim and Gina,
We truly enjoyed our stay here and being surrounded by your collections of history, family and art. We felt very at "home".
