Outdoors -- Scenes around Tahoe

The whacky weather of late has provided for some interesting photo opportunities. The shot of Emerald Bay was taken from a moving vehicle in the late afternoon of Aug. 6. Storm clouds dumped a dusting of snow at the higher elevations, and rain/hail/sleet at lake level.

It's still cold today, but temps are supposed to be back in the 70s this weekend.

The meadow/mountain shots were taken this morning (Aug. 7) at Squaw Valley.

I was not quick enough with the camera to get the bear when he/she was on her hind legs trying to get into the garbage container at Camp Rich. The bruin walked in front of the truck, almost right across the pedestrian walkway. Then she sauntered off behind the buidlings. I'm sure some of the campers were in for a surprise.
