  • 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...

                My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....

                I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

                Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

                The VacuFlo actually uses...

                I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
                Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
