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 Color In California

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.  🙂

Grover Hot Springs

December 2, 2009

Now folks, this is a super neat place to visit. It is perfect for people who love the mountains. Just consider…sitting in a pool filled with 102-105 degree water from 5 natural hot springs. Add to that it’s all outdoors so while you soak you are surrounded by the beauty of 10,000 foot mountains and pine forests. Talk about an experience!

Grover Hot Springs, a part of the California State Park system, is open all year. In fact, if you’re sitting in that hot spring water during mid-winter and the snow begins falling the effect is something you’ll not soon forget.

It only takes about 30-45 minutes to drive there from South Lake Tahoe. For more information check their website link below.

Quiet Time

November 4, 2009

It’s quiet up here now.

For those of you who have wanted to enjoy some peaceful time at Tahoe then between now and Thanksgiving is made to order for you. Traffic is light and you can go to just about any place and be virtually alone while you relax, connect with nature, or whatever.

For the most part the weather is ideal. Mid to upper 50s during the day and upper 30s to low 40s at night.

So…what are you waiting for? Come on up.
