  • Kokanee Festival

    Mrs.Trout and I went to Lake Tahoe yesterday for the Kokanee festival...



    it's that time of year when the kokanee salmon swim up stream to spawn...





    a kokanee is a fresh water salmon and their life cycle is 2 years.



    the fish up top is a cut throat trout...

    the plan was to meet up with some Friends at the festival and then drive out to their favorite little lake for a picknick....



    they said the road was a little rough but you couldn't beat the senery...



    this is looking out over the Nevada side of the sierra mountains.



    what goes up must go down...



    Lake Tahoe is a 3 1/2 hour dive one way so it was a good 14 hour day...

      When my husband & I lived in SF we visited Lake Tahoe several times and always enjoyed the drive around the lake. Can you still see a dinner plate at the bottom of the lake? (I think that was how they determined how clear the water is!)

          Hi Trout - beautiful scenery and great shots of the fish. Trips out don't come much better than this. Thanks for sharing the trip with us.

          I hope that was a typo and not the time it took to find sbarron01's plate!!!

            the motto for lake Tahoe is "Keep it Blue" and at the festival we did see the "now and then" pictures of the plate...

                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
