Sometimes the most unique getaways are off the beaten path a bit, and take a little extra effort to find. Such is the case with the Lazy Z Resort, a place well known by the families who have been visiting the resort since it opened in the 1940s, but not such a household name for most people. The Lazy Z is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills — Mark Twain country — where interestingly enough a small town was named after a couple of well-known writers: Twain and Brett Harte.

When Deborah Johannes visits her family?s beach cottage in the Mexican village of Popotla, just south of Rosarito, she travels, sans jewelry, in a low-profile Jeep Patriot. ?You don?t go driving a BMW in Mexico,? the La Cañada Flintridge resident said. During her most recent trip she left her teenage son at home, even though he was on spring break. ?We would have loved to have our son take his friends down and surf, but none of the parents wanted to let their kids go with us,?

LA HABRA - It took a nightmare inning to end the turnaround season the La Cañada High baseball team dreamed up before the year began in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV playoffs Tuesday. On two different occasions, the Spartans held a two-run lead on the road at Sonora High, but they seemed like distant memories when the Raiders exploded for six runs on six hits, two La Cañada errors and a leadoff walk in the bottom of the fifth inning that fueled their 8-5 victory.

If you're looking for the Wild West, you could do no better than to go to a place that was once the home of Mark Twain and even memorialized in one of his short stories. Lucky for California residents, Calaveras County is a reasonable drive from both north and south and puts a lot of Gold Rush history all within a few square miles. Students of Mark Twain will remember the "Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," a short story that was actually Twain's first published work and what eventually made him famous.
