Tahoe is known at the “lake of the sky” because it reflects the vivid, deep blue skies of the Sierras. On this day, we had some interesting clouds happening. I think this black and white treatment does the trick in showing just how dramatic this part of the world can be. Enjoy.
My morning commute is about to change and I was feeling all sentimental this morning. I love this view. It is breathtaking every day. I will miss it.
I will not, however, miss snowy/icy/treacherous road conditions on this winding road. I will not miss going through $1,000 in tires every year. I will not miss slow-ass tourists lollygagging on the drive. And, while I respect a bicyclist’s right to the road, I will not miss trying to avoid running them over while just getting where I am going every day.
Fortunately, my new morning commute (coming to this blog soon) will still include this same mountain from a much lower altitude.
I recently posted this photo as I had taken it pretty much straight out of camera. Then, I played with it a little bit in Instagram and shared with it with a few friends. My Instagram and Facebook accounts have pretty much blown up with comments and likes. So, I thought I would share it on here as well. It’s just another one from my daily commute. I literally just rolled the window down to take this picture. I didn’t even get out of the car.
This was taken from the Geiger Grade rest stop looking west at Mount Rose above Reno, Nevada.
I think I love winter weather pictures more than any other season. Sure, I love a nice, sunny day but there is so much more drama happening with fog, snow, ice crystals and clouds. Here … see what I mean?
