Don’t tell anyone…Now is the time to be at Tahoe   Leave a comment

If you don’t live at Tahoe you might not be aware of a great secret the locals keep from you. Hopefully they will not ostracize me and take away my locals credentials for passing it on here: September is better than August. It is just as beautiful, but the kids are back in school and the crowds are gone. If you can just find a way to get yourself here on a clear blue sky Wednesday morning in September you will know you have reached heaven.

Paddleboarding or kayaking:

Instead of having to get up at the crack of dawn to avoid the water skiers and wake boarders, who of course are getting up early to avoid the other water skiers and wakeboarders, you can take your time. Have a relaxing breakfast and another leisurely cup of coffee and let the temperature warm up a bit before heading down to Hurricane Bay or Tahoe Park, or along the shore of Donner Lake. There you can carry your board down to the empty beach, head out into the glassy water, and perhaps see one or two boats while you paddle joyfully for an hour.

Bike riding

Whether you are riding to the top of Barker Pass, from Donner Lake to Cisco Grove, or just along the Truckee River, the number of cars you will encounter on our favorite road rides is dramatically reduced this time of year. The same holds true for getting out on the mountain bike and riding the Emigrant Trail in Truckee, or the trails at Tahoe Cross-Country in Tahoe City. Pretty soon you will find lots of fall colors, but not lots of people.

Spend the night in the wilderness

The trails into the Desolation Wilderness are amazingly beautiful any time of year, but if you head out for a backpacking trip in September, you just might have one of Desolation’s prettiest lakes all to yourself.

Lie down on the beach and do nothing

Of course once you are done paddle boarding or kayaking or bike riding or hiking, you can drag a chair and a book and your favorite refreshment down to the beach. Then with the lake all to yourself alternate between reading a page and gazing out onto our favorite patch of big blue. Yep, now we are talking.

The unique and popular Trails and Vistas Art Hikes return to the region September 12th and 19th. This year the hikes are presented for the first time on two different weekends in two locations. The Art Hikes are three mile walks with a small group of people passing ten stations where you will find art, dance, music and storytelling. What could be a finer backdrop for art and music then the natural surroundings of the Sierra?

The Hike Details:
September 12th, Spooner Lake State Park, at the intersection of Highway 28 and Highway 50. On this hike, enjoy the soft beauty of groves of aspens and Spooner Lake.
September 19th, Donner Ski Ranch, Donner Summit.
On this hike, experience the raw beauty of the rocky crest of the Sierra and views of Donner Lake.

Tickets are $45. Guided hikes leave on a regular basis and must be registered for in advance. In addition to the standard hikes, you can attend a family hike, for those with young children, a meditative hike (periods of silence to enjoy the experience) and leisurely hike for those who wish to walk slowly. For tickets go to trailsandvistas.org

In addition to the Art Hikes, Trails and Vista is presenting a a World Concert at Sand Harbor on September 12, including 2014 Grammy Winning Pacific Mambo Orchestra, which combines big band horns, percussion, piano, and vocals. Other artists include celtic violinist Scarlet Rivera, Peter Joseph Burtt who presents soulful blues, a Taiko drum performance, jazz harpist Motoshi Kosako, and Ian Ethan on a double necked guitar.

World Concert tickets start at $23 and are available from trailsandvistas.org or the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare box office 800.747.4697.
