Snowshoes & Dams...

We headed to the North Shore for snowshoeing at Lookout Point, one of our favorite spots that we wanted to share with Suellen.

We have done this hike, several times through various seasons, but today's snow was exceptionally exciting.

This is where we had lunch. What a spectacular view. We even had a Bald Eagle fly by... Wow!
Steve wanted to see how much the Truckee River is flowing so we headed to the Lake Tahoe Dam, the only place where water flows out of the Lake. The dam was built between 1909 and 1913 and stands 18.2 ft high and 109 ft long. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.

Historic Fanny Bridge received its name from all of the fannies that can be seen from the road as gawkers stare over the edge, where in the summer large fish frolic. Today, there were only two fannies and they were there only for the photos.
Just another unique and fun day around Lake Tahoe!
