I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.
I took these photos at the Japanese American Historical Park with some Flowering Cherry Trees and in the background and across the Willamette River in the Convention Center and Moda Center; along with the Steel Bridge. One of the photos is a little part of the east bank of the Willamette River and there is a part of Interstate 5 that runs on the east side of Portland. There is a map below the photographs of where I took these.
Its been a little while since I last posted on this site and looks like that it would be some time before I would post anything of substance. At the moment blogging is not really at or near the top of the list of doing stuff – including posting photos that I took at Lake Tahoe, CA or anywhere else that I took photos at in my road trips of the last couple of years. Plus, I haven’t been to keen on spending the time on editing photos on the back-end of the site – like the alt tags, description, and so on giving the number of photos that I would like to upload on to this site. If there was a way to mass edit this type of info on a number of photos at one time would be great, but I don’t see how it could be done in WordPress.
The photograph below I took a few moments after the photo in the last post. In this photograph that I took with a Samsung phone – I’m looking towards the North – Northeast end of the lake.
Below is a photograph of a sunset that took one evening on Fallen Leaf Lake back in mid-October 2014 and I took it with my Samsung phone that I had at that time. It was looking towards the Northwest corner of the lake.
This video is now hosted on Vimeo instead of YouTube because I wanted to try Vimeo for sometime. The video below filmed in October 2014 when I was staying near South Lake Tahoe last year. I might move all of my videos to Vimeo but I’m sure I will yet.

One thing that I’ve found that I’ve missed is cooking holiday meals during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday’s. I haven’t cooked a turkey since the fall of 2007. I know I’m out of practice in cooking a Turkey and all the trimmings that go with it.
Today, I’ve noticed that I had become a registered user on WordPress.com ten years today and I can’t believe that much time had passed by. Hope the next 10 years would be interesting times in life and in blogging.
I’ve deleted the GoFundMe campaign that I had set up back on 31 August 2015, since I was able to get back to Northwest Oregon.
I may setup another campaign to help with more school costs like getting food.
Here are some photographs that I took with my iPad on my way up to Oregon from Arizona. I managed a way to get to school and since I didn’t have my Canon Camera with me to take photographs the “next” best thing to do – is to take a couple of photographs with my iPad.
Granted these aren’t of the best quality of photographs which is kind of expected with a 1 and 1/2 old iPad.
These were between Paso Robles, CA and Salinas, CA except for the body of water in the gallery. Think I took the photograph in Oregon but not sure.
The Amtrak line that took these photos were on the Coast Starlight.
Enjoy – like or leave a comment below the gallery.
Here is some photographs of an old fire pit at my families place at South Lake Tahoe. Used to use this fire pit up to the mid 1980’s.
I swept away the top layer of pine needles to expose the old fire pit so I could take a photo of it from different angles. The fire pit hasn’t been used in over 30 years. As far as I know there’s no plans to use it ever again – giving the fire danger of the region.
Though, what I would like to do with it is to “dress it up” with benches and a table in the middle that would re-purpose the spot to eat outdoors.
There are a lot of things that I want to do with the place that I stayed at last year and it come’s down to money and time (another post for another time).
Here is a pair of videos that I’ve made while I was at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA. It’s of one Duck that came onto the beach that I was at and next to one of the docks at the property that I was staying at last fall.
These videos were taken at the beginning of September 2014.
Here is a second part video that I took of a duck:
Found it on Time.com, enjoy folks. Peter
