Daily Photo:

We picked a great time to visit Lake Tahoe. In early June nobody was there. We were one of the only travelers in our hotel at Kings Beach. We drove around the whole lake and decided we liked the northern and eastern area for photos of sunsets and rock formations, such as the one found in the photo. It was down a path from a residential area that had public access. We found out that folks here don’t take kindly to people trespassing on their property. They paid for the view and they want it all to “themselves”!

More Tahoe Hiking, Biking, etc.

Second Act

We’ve been out a few more times in the past week. The weather has been so awesome, mid 70’s, sunshine and bright blue skies.

Along the Truckee River Trail

Truckee River Trail – This biking and walking trail begins in Tahoe City on the western edge of town. There’s a nice parking lot for trail users. The trail heads west, as you might guess, following the Truckee River. You pass the River Ranch Lodge and Alpine Meadows Road before crossing over the river and reaching a point where you can cross over Highway 89 into Squaw Valley. The path continues another 2.3 miles to the Squaw Valley Ski resort and village. Perfect place to stop for a snack before heading back.

It’s believed the crawdads were introduced to the lake sometime in the 1800’s and the population has since grown to an estimated 220 million according to an article on the University of Nevada, Reno website. While I was oblivious to the fact that the lake was full of little crustaceans, I was fully aware that crawdads are in fact delicious. So armed with a crawdad trap and the responsibility to do my part to keep Tahoe blue, I headed out to the east shore to catch my next meal.

How to catch crawdads:

The easiest way to catch crawdads is with a trap, which can be purchased from most sporting goods stores. The trap is made of wire netting. It’s cylindrical with conical shaped holes at either end that…

My Happy Place

My Happy Place

Many moons ago I left Lake Tahoe, and ever since then I have referred to it as my happy place. I often return home to visit, and each time I stay a little longer and it gets a little harder to leave. Today I am in search of possible ideas or suggestions for future employment in the area. I am Dreaming of Tahoe!
