This was taken at sunset and there is sunlight behind the mountain located in the northwest side of the lake.

A lake at night

Here is a 30 second video that I did on September 10, 2014 at dusk. I’m looking west from a dock and you could barely see lights on the west side of the lake. I had one of my dogs with me and you could hear them shake in the background of the short video. There’s a little light coming from behind the mountain.

Enjoy!

Overcast Sunset at Fallen Leaf Lake

A Video on A Windy 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.

Enjoy and leave a like or a comment below. Peter.

An old Fire Pit that is no longer being used that is made out of stone..

An Old Fire Pit

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).

Panoramic Photographs at Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe, CA

A Field of Sage

Here is some photo’s of a Sage field that is located on Fallen Leaf Road that is outside of South Lake Tahoe, CA., off of Route 89. This sage field is result of an controlled fire that happened about 6 to 8 years ago (not sure exactly when that controlled fire happened).

These photo’s were taken with my iPhone 5c on 13 November 2014. There might be a few that are blurry photos when I took them in the last 30 to 45 minutes of daylight of stated date.

Hope all of you would enjoy some photo’s until I get some more up on this site.

A mountain in the Lake Tahoe Basin. This was heading to beach on Lake Tahoe's south shore.

An Unexpected Trip

Well, things have changed for worse over the last few days, to the point where I would myself and my brother would be taking a road trip to Lake Tahoe. Which would be another one year apart from our last trip there.

The circumstances of this road trip which changed our plans of going sooner. We will be there for about a month or two, before we head to Utah for a bit of time. There is one good thing about going sooner is that I’m able to take more photographs all around Lake Tahoe. Along with other points of interest in the region. Well, possible points of interests in the region.

Though, it doesn’t help that I have three weeks left of university classes for the summer term.

Anyways, I would be spending some more time at Lake Tahoe for a bit longer than last year – which is a good thing. Assuming I would be able to get the car fixed as soon as possible.

This post was prompted by a daily prompt called Road Tripping. (I know this post is a few days later than I wanted to post on the web.)

Then, most likely we will be coming back to the northwest to do a few things before heading to Utah for a bit.

 

In the above are three routes that I might take to reach South Lake Tahoe, California. For some reason I’ve like to take road trips to Lake Tahoe during the summer months. Though, time does fly when I’m at Lake Tahoe which is a pain of the backside to no end when I was growing up in California.

Rogue and Lolo videos

Here are two videos of Rogue and Lolo at Kiva Beach on Lake Tahoe this past September. Both videos are rather short and I spoke during the films of each clip and my voice is a little nansel. So, leave a comment if you like these videos (and Note: any negative comments will be removed from this post or from the YouTube pages).

This post my be edited at a later time. Peter.

This video below was taken a few moments later after the above video.
