Lake Tahoe

I was asked to speak at the Nevada Health Care Association's Annual Conference in Lake Tahoe. Chris happened to be scheduled for a job in San Francisco, so we made a little trip out of it. We dropped the boy off at his Aunt and Uncle Herbst's house, and then flew to Reno. We then rented a car and drove to Tahoe.

The conference was held at Harvey's Casino Lake Tahoe, which is right on the lake. It isn't my preferred place to stay (I love the Black Bear Inn, where Chris and I stayed before James was born), but hey, Harvey's was free.

That night Chris drove to San Francisco for his job while I stayed in Tahoe and finished prepping for my session the next morning. He met me back at the hotel after I was done (about 1pm), and we took off and drove around the lake.

Here is a view of the lake looking back at where all of the casinos are. The tall black building is Harvey's.

Here I am looking out over Emerald Bay.

This is Emerald Bay. It is 3 miles long and one mile wide. It was really beautiful.

A pic of Chris enjoying the 90 degree temps and the fresh mountain air.

Another great view of Emerald Bay, and the mouth of the bay where all of the boats come in and out.
