AT Tahoe Lake

The altitude is 8000' and I am experiencing altitude sickness weak and short of breath.  It is so beautiful I want to go hiking so bad but all I can do is walk ever so slowly.  I did go to the casino walked in the door sat down at the first penny machine played a ten for a hour in a half got  up to
$ 53.00 and finally back down  to 2 cents, so I took  my 2 cents moved to another machine and won .30 so I played it all and walked back to the condo with $49.61 not bad for two hours work.

Other than my not feeling good and you look beyond the crowds Tahoe brings back so many happy memories my parents had a home up here for a couple of years I guess you say "back in the day" it was not so crowded  and the building in every inch of land of so many motels and shops had not happened it was not the same.  The air is crisp and the feel of the place is the same I have heard the wind moving through the sugar pines, it is just a magical place.  I imagine what it must have been like when only the Indians and animal lived here, oh it is just awesome.  The salmon are running at the mouth of the Truckee river that feeds into the lake and the bears are seen all the time  there was one walking around the pool area this morning I just missed him, dang I would have loved to see him  of course I would not have had my camera.  Another high point of the trip we went to Carson City they have a wonderful museum we spent the morning there, the history of this country is all tied up with gold and silver even today the Comstock mine is working day and night driving to Virginia City is like a drive in Logging county the trucks make the roads so dangerous.
Well we are off to a walk in the woods and I have my camera.
