Kokanee Salmon Festival

September 29, 2010

The annual Kokanee Salmon Festival is the weekend of October 2nd and 3rd.  Click Here for more information.

We just got back from a preview look over at Taylor Creek Visitor Center.  The creek is thick with beautiful salmon.  Easy to see in the crystal clear water.

Come on up and have a look.  It’s a sight like no other.

Note:  The link above is often quite slow in opening so be patient.  It’s well worth the wait.

Fall Colors Update #2

September 28, 2010

Just a short note here.  As we predicted yesterday there are no colorful leaves yet in Hope Valley or elsewhere nearby.

Below is a link to photographer Carol Leigh’s fall color  web page.  She keeps it updated with reports sent in by readers.  I recommend that you check it regularly.

Fall Colors Update #1

September 27, 2010

Well folks, not much to report yet.  Although there are small spots of color the trees around the Tahoe region are still mostly green.  We’ll try and take a look in the next day or two over in nearby Hope Valley but it’s unlikely that much is happening yet.

The reports we’ve seen indicate most of the colors are far south of us at this time.  Mostly in the Bishop area.  If you’re going to be in that location during the next week or so you should check out Rock Creek, Bishop Creek, and Lake Sabrina.

We’ll post an update when we have more information.

The Times Of Betwixt And Between

September 21, 2010

Well, the summer season is over and it is autumn, that wonderful time of the year between the hot days of summer and the cold snows of winter.  The temperatures are noticeably cooler now and the crowds are mostly gone.

Soon the yearly display of fall foliage will burst forth in its eyeball dazzling array of yellow, gold, and red leaves.  We’ll be keeping an eye on the progress so we can report the best places for you to enjoy Mother Nature’s spectacular show.

We’ll sign off for now so we can begin driving around and compiling our reports.  Yeah, it’s a tough job but somebody has to do it.  🙂
