My World 12: Go Tell It To the Mountains.

05 Jan

The bay area as you know does not experience snowy winters.  For those of us who want a taste of that,  snow and mountain are just 3 hours away—depending on the traffic of course.  And our winter playground happens to be the Sierra Nevada mountain range notably the city of Lake Tahoe.  I am sharing with you some winter snaps I took a couple of years ago when the need for snow was too much for hubs and I that we had to drive up to the mountain.  Luckily the day we left, it was not snowing and as you can see the freeway is clear.

    Not bad to be able to get to such beauty and snow with a little drive–but not to live in it!

    You’re giving me a skiing jones with this stuff. I didn’t get to go at all last year, so I’m pretty anxious. But it’ll probably have to wait a bit until I re-gather myself from Christmas and 4 December birthdays!

    Beautiful views of the Sierras. Haven’t been to Tahoe in 30 years, the snow banks in town were at least 15 feet tall. The skiing was great.

    It’s lovely. I think you probably appreciate the snow much more than those of us colder climes. This is the best way to experience it – a light dusting that looks lovely and doesn’t interfere with your life.

    I used to go up skiing on this route when I was a kid from Alameda. I have a lot of pleasant memories of those drives and trips. The Sierra Nevada is a beautiful mountain range. And Lake Tahoe is a Natural Wonder. Thanks for showing some of these great photographs.

    There you again with your wonderful driveby shots! (I*m sure they are driveby no?)

    Its always a delight to see how your winter shots doesn’t look gloomy, but instead they are so full of life and hope!
