Lake much nicer in the fall :)

Hello my friends!

We started this post a week ago...eek! I finally get to share it with you. We made a brief camping weekend in Lake Tahoe recently.
Fall is a treat in Tahoe, as the crowds have departed, and the temps are often quite nice.

We stumbled upon a small campground Saturday eve just behind this fabulous dock and beach.
No problem getting a site. We even saw a big bear rumbling through the grounds!

Sunday morning. I could have stayed right here ALL DAY!

Had the lake almost to myself! Fabulous!

Lake stones were quite entertaining...I enjoyed rolling them around!

Clear waters.

Practicing my sea-horsie maneuver!

Sun and warmth.

Calm waters. This was Saturday ...we spent the day in the Truckee area, for Dad's favorite ride on the Emigrant Trail, while mom and I hiked around.

Looking towards a reservoir we had camped near Friday eve.

This is the little trail at the Donner Party Memorial Park that we always visit while in Truckee.

Our Friday night campground at Lakeside, Prosser Reservoir outside of Truckee.

On our walk Saturday morning...looking towards the reservoir.

It was a really nice get-away from the busy around here.

Hope to visit with you all again soon!


  1. AAHhhhhhhhh... Fall in the Sierras! The light and the colors are wonderful!

  11. Hi Sierra Rose, I liked seeing Lake Tahoe/Truckee in the fall. Your Mom's photos are fabulous. I like the pink glow at sunset. Breckenridge is quiet now, too, with all the tourists gone.

  12. It's nice to see you are back to your adventures! I love Tahoe but we never seem to be able to get up there. Hopefully, this winter, we will. It's beautiful year round, isn't it?

  13. You lucky girl, having the lake and campground to yourself, in Fall!!!
    We loved Prosser Reservoir, great bird watching there, so relaxing!
    I'm so glad you got away from the busy world to enjoy the Sierras!
    Belly rubs to you
    Hugs to Mom & Dad

  14. Sierra Rose! How do you manage to always make beautiful places MORE beautiful? ;D

    Lake Tahoe and your hikes in Truckee look like a smashing weekend get away! Good for you all! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  23. Hi beautiful Sierra Rose,
    I just happened to post a picture of our crew at Prosser Dam Reservoir today-we love it there. We have a little house in Truckee-we hope to move there next summer. It is so beautiful.

    You are so lucky to have such a fun family who spends so much time outdoors!

    We hope we get to meet you one day!
