Lake Tahoe North

Photo: From Reno, we followed the Truckee River; like the Donner Party of yore. We brought other food, though.
Photo: Agricultural inspection, something you don't see everyday. Will they confiscate the kids' pine cones?
Photo: Off to the next part of our California adventure.
Photo: Yet another scenic route through the Sierra Nevada mountains
Photo: Scenic for Grant, too
Photo: The Tower of Nations at Squaw Valley. I've always wanted to see an Olympic Torch
Photo: Squaw Valley was the site of the VIII Winter Olympics in 1960.
Photo: Torch is still lit. Reno/Tahoe has put in a bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics. Maybe this time they'll have a bobsled track?
Photo: We brought a lot of cameras. My Canon Rebel XTI, Dulce's Panasonic DMC-ZS19, Anya's Kodak C180, and Dulce's spiffy new iPhone 5. Don't ask how many photos we took...
Photo: Just what are they taking pictures of?
Photo: Anya got me raising the "torch"
Photo: Grant got the grass. I like the color
Photo: Again, perfect weather!
Photo: Our first glimpse of Lake Tahoe
Photo: Wow, is that blue!
Photo: Sorry kids, we're not eating out. All our meals will be cooked in our cabin.
Photo: Our cabin had private locked access to Cedar Flat homeowners beach, with a large pier.
Photo: Huge cedar trees; smelled terrific
Photo: There's our pier

Photo: No fear
Photo: Grant reading the sign

Photo: Lake Tahoe is 22 miles long and 12 miles wide. It is the largest alpine lake in North America
