Photoblog Wednesday - Me and my son in Lake Tahoe

Gotta love Lake Tahoe...  I was headed down to Tahoe City which is on the North shore of Lake Tahoe.  The road follows the Truckee River up to the lake where the dam is located.  Well, not really a dam, but a out-take of the lake that coan control the amount of water leaving the lake at any particular time.

So I saw a cut out on the side of the road and pulled over.  My son Ryan and I trekked through the brush and found the most perfect place to throw rocks!

Truckee River

The water was sooooo cold obviously...  As the lake is snow runoff, and there is still snow on the ground in the shadows...  The river is a major rafting river for those that just want a lazy ride...

 

Me and my son

It seemed that our super-secret place was not so secret as we walked up the river and ran into some newlyweds from Minnasoooooota.  Or something like that, eh?  They had us take a picture of them, so I made them take one of me and my son.

Hope your Wednesday rocks!
