Like a kid in a candy store I was drooling in awe of the scenery and especially the trees during this recent trip to Lake Tahoe California/Nevada. I jokingly commented to my family that if I only had a shovel, I might be going home with one of these gnarly trees. I didn’t get any laugh but rather dirty looks, they know I’m crazy enough that I might do it. But rest assured, I didn’t do that, instead, I took some photos. The photos however will not do justice to translate the awesomeness of this place. I saw many ponderosa pines, manzanitas, very old cedar (incense cedar), oak type of shrub with beautiful crackling bark. There were trees that would have taken very little work to make them into a beautiful bonsai. In fact, there is a place I will visit before leaving Tahoe, it’s called the “bonsai rock”. I will include photos here after my visit. Enjoy the photos.
