  • 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!!!

                Glad things worked out.

                I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
