Last week we were in Lake Tahoe.  Although I consider myself a decent — perhaps even better-than-average — amateur photographer, I simply cannot take photos that do this place justice.  It is — in my opinion (a phrase strongly encouraged by my daughter’s teacher, which I have adopted!) — perhaps the most spectacular place on earth.   I am just so…happy…when I am there.  Anyway, here are a few shots.  (If you’d like to compare my photos from last summer and last winter, click here, here and here.)

(Do not adjust your screen — the water is THAT blue.)

The Truckee River -- we spend as much time on it as we do on the lake.
