Vibrant yellow leaves are gently waving in the wind today. Although overnight temperatures are been dipping into the 30's, daytime temperatures are still in the sixties. This is do to change in the next day or two according to the weather people. Rain drops, thunderstorms and cooler night and daytime temperatures are forecast for the coming week.
I am glad I was able to paddle my kayak along the west shore of Tahoe the other day under calm, warm, and sunny skies. This time of year is great for paddling in the lake, as most of the motor boats are not being used, especially during the week. The lake tends to remain calm and smooth without the heavy motor boat traffic that occurs during summer months. We paddled along the shoreline from the beach at Bliss State Park to the Tea House on the island in Emerald Bay. The round trip is about 8 to 9 miles and takes between about 3 hours. This does not include a stop for lunch on the island while sitting in the sun filling one’s senses with the exceptional view of Emerald Bay afforded from the Tea House. Sunday was the closing date for Bliss Park, thus the beach is no longer accessible for this season.
A little rain this week would be great for mountain bike riding, as the dust on the trails would disappear.
Hopefully, the wind and rain forecast for the week will not cause our fall leaves to drop prematurely from the tree. We are hoping to have a nice long fall with plenty of color for riding and hiking before winter sets in, and we drag our skis out of the closet.
Enjoy your day. Andy
