Lake Tahoe has it’s own awesome writing event right on the shore of Lake Tahoe this coming weekend, October 21-22nd. Lake Tahoe Word Wave is a shouldn’t be missed event for anyone interested in writing and reading. In addition to enjoying interesting and informative presentations, you get to hang out at the spectacular setting which is Valhalla: A classic old Tahoe retreat on the quiet, lovely grounds which once housed the Baldwin Hotel. It is located between Camp Richardson and Taylor Creek.

The festivities begin on the evening of Friday October 21st with a Tall Timber Ball at Valhalla’s Grand Hall.

On Saturday, October 22nd there is a full schedule of events including:

Galadrielle Allman, who penned the memoir, “Please be with me: A song for my father Duane Allman,” Chosen by Amazon as a Best Book for 2014. Her story, “Only Women Bleed,” is included in the forthcoming anthology Crime + Music. Galadrielle is presently working on a novel about teenage love and punk rock music.

Craft and Courage (And the twelve years it took for my first book deal): Melissa Cistaro discusses what sustained her through the long journey of writing her memoir “Pieces of my mother.” She works as a writing mentor and event coordinator at Book Passage, the esteemed independent bookstore in Northern California, where she has introduced hundreds of authors.

Writing the Healing Story: How do we put together the pieces of our past and find the courage to craft our narrative truths?

Big Bend and Cisco Grove Along Old Hwy. 40   Leave a comment

By Tim Hauserman

Once Highway 40 was known as the Lincoln Highway, and was the main route across the Sierra between Sacramento and Reno. Little towns such as Big Bend and Cisco Grove were places to eat, pick up some groceries, or purchase a gift before the final push over Donner Summit into Truckee. With the completion of Interstate 80, the commercial establishments along much of Highway 40 died away, but many of the original buildings and character of the communities still exist.

Cisco Grove has Gould Park, a 15 acre swath of greenery on the banks of the bustling Yuba River. From here begins the 20 Mile Museum, which includes dozens of interpretative signs along Highway 40 all the way to Donner Lake. Each sign tells the story of where you are and gives ideas for things to do nearby.

Cisco Grove contains a host of fascinating buildings, many constructed of rock. Just another mile or so up Highway 40 lies Big Bend. On the way, be sure and marvel at the mini rapids in the Yuba River as you travel underneath Interstate 80.

Big Bend is home to a major Forest Service Fire Station, campground, the popular Loch Leven Lakes trail, and ancient cabins tucked along the Yuba River. A bit further upstream you reach The Rainbow Lodge, and then a series of fascinating cascades which splash over the smooth granite. A few lucky homes sit tucked amongst the rocks enjoying delicious natural pools in their back yards.

While Old 40 is a leisurely drive, the best way to see Big Bend and Cisco Grove is via bicycle, in fact it is one of the most popular bike rides in the area. The road is lightly traveled, but well maintained, and the ride is pleasant and beautiful. It is also deceptively challenging. From the top of Donner Summit to Cisco Grove feels like a nice gentle descent while riding west, but feels like a long, not as gentle as you thought, ride back to the top. Especially the section between Kingvale and Soda Springs. It feels easier to start in Cisco Grove and warm up with the climb.

Whether you drive or ride, a visit to Cisco Grove and Big Bend, is a perfect way to break up the drive from the Bay Area to Truckee, and will feel like a step back in time.
