Mountain Biking Lake Tahoe’s West Shore

(3)
August 28, 2012

Lake Tahoe’s West Shore is not often associated with epic Tahoe Mountain biking.  Among the marquee Tahoe mountain biking destinations (Mr. Toads, the Flume Trail, Northstar, Hole in the Ground, etc), the West Shore is often overlooked.  Make no mistake though, there is great mountain biking here as well.

How I Became an Environmental Activist

I am not an activist in the protesting, letter writing sense.  Instead, I use a chainsaw to speak for me.  Let me explain: It was probably around the 20th time I’d heaved my bike over the large tree blocking the trail.  “When are they going to get out here and cut these %^&*ing trees?,” I… Read More ›

TahoePix- Fall

Is it possible to get tired of blazing yellow aspens in the fall?  Aspens are like an alarm clock of sorts for summer and winter freaks alike.  For winter people, it’s time to start dreaming of early snow and big powder days.  For summer people, it’s a countdown timer and reminder to get in every… Read More ›

TahoePix- Aloha

One of my favorite lakes:  Aloha Lake in Desolation Wilderness.  To me, visually stunning in a way that no photo can capture.  Hundreds of granite islands and peninsulas and clear, cold water make for epic exploration.

TahoePix- Tents and tired paws

A twofer this week.  There’s something about tent pics that represents a bit of home in the outdoors. Home is where you pitch it. Daisy Trail dog- sacked out on the “trail couch” in the camp living room/kitchen.
