Trip to Tahoe

We needed to get out of the seering heat here and decided a trip to Tahoe was in order. We are at 1800' and the thermometer was near a hundred for a week...the cooler temperatures up in the mountains were calling us and we responded. The photo below was taken at one of my favorite places on Earth. It is so quiet at the edge of the forest here and the birds and insects orchestrate the view. We saw Red-Winged Blackbirds and an Osprey. Bald Eagles nest here in the winter time and the Salmon runs in the Spring and Fall are spectacular. Here is where nature dominates and it is awesome to feel so small in its presence. I don't feel insignificant, more a part of the whole. It is a meditative feeling...inclusive but not smothering. It is the essence of Peace.
