Frolic Gatherin'Ground

2 sites · Lodging20 acres · CA
Located in the Sierra Nevada Foothills in Gold Country~ 15 min from Grass Valley, Nevada City or Colfax.  Frolic has been an adventure for me in Saying Yes to life and the rewarding challenges it brings. I fell in love with the big oak, the pristine pond and the feral overgrown everything. It has been a workin' progress and lots of time to pause and listen. Frolic has been a great teacher in reminding me to PLAY, relax and go with the flow. I hope you can find the same joy and rejuvenation here.
