How Many Colors?

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Leaving Lake Tahoe today and heading back home to my own garden!  Whenever my daughter Tashi was younger and we were heading into Tahoe towards our cabin we would always pass the lake.  It never failed, no matter what time of day or what season, Tashi wanted to count the colors of the lake. Lake Tahoe changes colors as is gets deeper and colder and she loved to see how many different colors she could see. It has always been one of our “Tahoe Traditions” that now carries on to my grandchildren when I bring them up with me.  It gives us a chance to stop and appreciate the beauty of nature, the beauty of the lake in the midst of the excitement of vacation and all that goes along with that.  I try to teach them that even in this place of so much fun there is a beauty they won’t find anywhere else.
