Overview of California



Lake Tahoe

I was lucky and was able to spend four years living in the small ski town of Truckee, CA about 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe. It's my dream to relocate back to Tahoe City one day.  I loved the area so much, that my first website was about the town of Truckee and the Lake Tahoe area - Truckee Travel Guide.

Below is a picture that I took of one of my favorite places at Lake Tahoe - Emerald Bay on the West side of the Lake.
