Thomas Hiking on the Tahoe Rim Trail

August 3 2022

Drove to South Lake Tahoe this morning to drop off Thomas for a great 3 day adventure.

So bummed that I didn’t feel up to spending time at the beach or doing a bit of hiking. Tahoe is stunning!!

I’m thrilled for Thomas to be able to participate!

**Update on Thomas added – Message received from Tahoe Rim Trail Association: “The group has faced some challenging weather over the past few days but has persevered with the help of some weather shelters and their positive attitudes. They are a resilient bunch!

Due to lightning concerns throughout the afternoon, the group will not be hiking Freel Peak, but instead will be continuing their journey at lower elevation and in the trees for more protection. As of now, there is no lightning in their area, but we are committed to taking extra safety precautions to keep them safe throughout this adventure.”

Shortly after receiving this message, they sent another saying they were going to end the trip one day early as all equipment and the hikers were soaked from the rain.

Thomas and I went for a hike on the Tamarack Lake Trail earlier this afternoon. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful.

Thomas had fun hitting rocks into the lake. I included some blooper photos of trying to take selfies with the wild wind that was blowing, and a blooper of what happens when Thomas takes my photo … He keeps taking the photo until I take my phone away! Crazy kid!

It finally cleared enough for a walk. Lillian’s choice: Our old neighborhood, with a refreshing cool breeze. Bonus: We got to see a cormorant in bat pose! Cormorants and pelicans are two of my favorites.

I am good tired this afternoon. A swim this morning and then a lovely hike to Tamarack Lake with beautiful people. Thank you Fran, Melinda, and Barbara. And to the four legged fur friends you brought along …. Stella, Hank and Boo. Deeply grateful for being invited with you ladies. Nature’s beauty is magnificent.

The Beauty of Spooner Lake With an Art Showing of Clouds and Rare Purple

Amazing socially distanced hike around Spooner Lake, organized by Tahoe Herbivores. Walked a couple of miles, sat for lunch, and then another mile. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful. My first time here, so lots of photos.

Cloud update. These are from yesterday afternoon. It seriously feels as if we’re at an art showing, with nature changing the art every few seconds.
