Finding my spring snows...

A visit back to the mountains last weekend.... Still finding the bestest stickies! Spring teased us with sun, storms, winds and fresh snow!
The storm that blew in Saturday, provided almost 8 inches of snow!

Making for a fun long walk with my humans Saturday evening.

Little creeks breaking through the meadow snow cover.
Before the storm , we could see the craggy caves of Red Cliffs.
And, Sunday the storm closed in on the upper mountain.

Sun breaks...
Calming weather predicted, we decided to head north on Hwy 88, making the turn towards South Lake Tahoe.With sun the day after, we hiked around near the Emerald Bay area.

Amazing vistas. Fannette Island, the only island in Lake Tahoe.

Constant changing clouds over craggy peaks.

Still a chilly day, but I had my double furs on :)

Looking towards the Camp Richardson area, and Heavenly ski trails.

Certainly nice to be in the mountain air again.

Hope you had a nice weekend!
See you again soon pals.


  1. WOW what a beautiful sight! I would SO love to be up there right now. It's too hot in Malaysia.

  2. Your snow looks wonderful to us, Sierra Rose! It's been too hot at our house the last few days! Your pictures are just gorgeous!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. Fantastic vistas! Lake Tahoe is such a beautiful resort area. Mom remembers having so much fun there! I've never been yet. Maybe some day but Mom better buy me a big thick jacket first! Or maybe I can borrow your second layer of hair Sierra Rose? ;) Great outing! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  4. No kidding!!! Snow again?
    But the view is so beautiful, so glad that you've found your perfect stick too.

  5. Hey there Sierra!! We've been trying to get by to say hi to everyone, since we've gotten back!

    How strange to see a snow post in June!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  6. That picture of lake Tahoe island is so good I'd frame it! I love to see Siara's fuzzy ears. Milk that coolness as long as you can!

  7. Snow?! That seems crazy ;-) I am so happy to kiss the winter goodbye!

  8. WOW... that is beautiful!!!! It's 99 here in Mississippi today. Hard to believe that it's still snowing in other parts of the country!


  9. Looking at these photos seems impossibly surreal, but then again, the weather here has been so unseasonable cold and windy and RAINY argghhhhh! Maybe... would rather be in the snow than the wet and dismal! So great to hang with you both this am - moremoremore!!!
    Huge Hugs and thanks for posting these pics - incredible!

  10. Fabulous photos!

    We're amazed at snow in June though!

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  11. I can smell the mountain freshness ...inhale...exhale...aaahhh! Now back to warmth I hope!

  12. With the heat and humidity we have here now, that snow looks sooooooo good - wish we were there. Enjoy it while you can, Sierra Rose.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  13. Brrrr!!! If you don't mind me asking, where are you at? We are almost at 100 degree days here.


  14. I always say this, but I really mean it, I love your pictures!! You have the most beautiful places to explore, and with the heat we've had this week, the snow would be welcomed and wonderful fun for our very hot-dogs!! :-)

  15. Hi Sierra,

    You had a wonderful day. I am jelouse (if dogs get jelouse) cause you are up inthe mountains and we still only get to look at them.

    Maybe My Vickie will get me up there next week. I sure hope so. Then I can enjoy a day like you had.


  16. You bring back memories. We had a year-long rental of a cabin in Meeks Bay (close to Emerald Bay) during our last year in CA. I absolutely adored it in the winter and other off-season times. This time of year was, as you know, variable! Sunny and warm one day, and snowy the next!

    Love the photos!

  17. Hey there! Finally think I can make a comment without crashing! LOVE these pics, although the thought of powder up there is a lot surreal!!! Looks like frigid January rather than June! Also love the pix of, in and around Lake Tahoe - neat to see it all without crowds! Hope you get a chance to hike to Eagle Lake, but have another better idea. Get thyselves up to Echo Lake, take the ferry across and hike a fairly flat trail to Aloha Lake or any others that are clustered around there. It is gorgeous!
    Big Hugs from us all xoxoxo

  18. Always love to see you on your walks baby. Amie wouldn't have liked snow.
    lots of love Soggibottom Cottage X X X

  19. Wowserz! Those are some awesome views, Sierra Rose!! I've never seen snow, and I doubt I ever will. I hear it's fun to play in though!

    Happy weekend woofs & hugs,


  20. Snow?!?! SNOW?!?!? Can we PLEASE go with you on your next adventure?!?!!?
    Play bows,
    PS: You do have the most gorgeous pix on your blog!!!

  21. Always a beautiful view on your blog Sierra, thank you for sharing the view with us :)

  22. Sierra Rose!
    Here is sooooo hot that looking at your snowy pictures made us feel better!
    Glad you enjoyed those views there!
    Have a great weekend too!
    Kisses and hugs

  23. Ohhh, I'm so sorry you are getting snow...we have high 90's here in NC and have had for a good three weeks! But I have to be honest, Hurraicne would rather have the snow...he's not a hot weather fan at ALL!
    Sierra, you are too cute!

  24. Snow!!?? We're at 99 degrees here...
    Going to stick my head in the freezer until November. Your pics are simply breathtaking!!

  25. Oh thank you for this refreshing post!
    We are suffering with sweltering heat and drought here in the southeast!
    If anyone can find the snow, it's you!

  26. *taps California on shoulder* Uh, did anybody tell you that it is JUNE and it's time for you to vacate the premises for a few months???

    Glad you made the best of it Sierra and took some great walkies, (and got the stink blowed offa your PUs too.)

    Woofs and stinky slobbers,
    Chester ;0=)

  27. Hi sweet girl! What a surprise to come catch up on your blog and see some snow! I bet that's all gone and melted now and you're enjoying some refreshing swimmies instead. Best to your mom and dad!

  28. So much snow, hard to believe it's June!
    Thank you for the beautiful pics of Lake Tahoe looking like March instead!
    Belly rubs to Sierra Rose
