Baldwin Beach

In the Fall

Debbie Mortensen submitted the following to the Tahoe Country Visitor's Forum:

My favorite spot right now is Baldwin Beach in the Fall. The weather is still warm, the leaves are brilliant colors, the kokaneee are running and best of all, the crowds have disappeared. The two aspen trees were taken at Baldwin Beach about where the Visitor's Center trail and the historic estate's walk converge. They are by far my favorites. I try to walk or ski this area whenever I come to Tahoe, if it's not too crowded. I think this small area gives a person a sense of just how beautiful the South Shore area used to be before the massive urban sprawl.

The other two pictures are of Taylor Creek and of Mt. Tallac. If you look closely you can see the red Kokanee in Taylor Creek doing their annual spawning run. Both of these pictures were taken in the Fall on the last kayak/nature trip offered by the kayaking outfit that works out of Camp Richardson's Marina. It was a guided trip that was well worth the money, but you can do it on your own as well.

Keep Tahoe Blue!!!
