    Tucked away in a quiet corner of the sleepy community of Portola is a true gem: The Western Pacific Railroad Museum. Here you will find nearly 100 railroad engines, rolling stock and cabooses from a range of eras that are all part of the story of this unique railroad company. You can take a ride on a train and, if […]

    Kevin Sloane’s been teaching flying since 1993, but you are more likely to have seen his yellow plane capturing images for Squaw Valley over the Funitel or flying low over Lake Tahoe. He’s been photographed for STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) Magazine, the bible for pilots who fly the types of planes Sloane flies. This past February, in his […]

  • Autumn trails

    Once the crowds of summer have left, it’s time to put on your hiking shoes and hit the trail. The weather is still usually nice and the trails are not as crowded.

  • Trails and Vistas · Melding of art & nature

    By Tim Hauserman on September 7, 2016
    While I’ve been lucky enough to attend several Trails and Vistas art hikes over the years, words cannot do justice to the experience. There is something about the combination of all of the sights, sounds and senses that gives these hikes a feeling and essence different from anything else you will find in Tahoe.

    North Tahoe Adventures, the folks who brought you Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park at Granlibakken in Tahoe City and the Squaw Valley Adventure Park, have expanded to another location in Tahoe Vista.

    Until recently, I primarily focused my mountain biking excursions close to home in Tahoe City. You could find me rolling along the Emigrant Trail, dodging the grasshoppers in Page Meadows or checking out the trails I ski on in the winter at Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area. Armstrong Connector Trail is a fun downhill with awesome views of the lake […]
  • Paddleboard, kayak or canoe?

    By Tim Hauserman on August 31, 2016
    One of the best ways to experience Lake Tahoe is to paddle along its shore. When paddling you are close to the water and traveling at a pace at which you can truly capture the essence of the lake. It’s also a great workout. You need to decide whether you want to use a standup paddleboard, kayak or canoe. My […]

  • Backpacking with teenagers

    By Tim Hauserman on August 17, 2016
    Our kids spend much of their lives looking at their phones and computer screens or heading to sports activities. This leaves little time to do what their parents spent most of their time doing when they were kids – playing in nature. A great way to get kids disconnected from the digital world is to have them fill a backpack […]
