War with the Squirrel!

by Tim Hauserman The first battle began early in the morning when I was startled by what sounded like a bomb hitting the roof of my house. It was followed quickly thereafter by a second and then a third explosion. My eyes tore open with the thought: what in the hell was going on?  I […]

Fall Colors reaching peak!

By Tim Hauserman  The turning of the leaves in the fall always sneaks up on me. I’m merrily rolling along on dusty hikes followed by a brisk dip into the lake, when boom, it’s cold and the aspens suddenly are covered with yellow and orange leaves. Given that most of Tahoe’s trees are conifers, which […]

How big a winter will it be?

By Tim Hauserman Yes, sports fans, it’s time once again for Tahoe’s favorite fall activity: Predict how big a winter it will be!

Hike Blackwood Canyon to Ward Canyon

By Tim Hauserman An early September morning found me on the Tahoe Rim Trail between Barker Pass and Ward Creek. This has always been one of my favorite sections of the TRT. The trail traverses across a fascinating volcanic slope, passing a number of small streams and seeps flush with greenery and a few remaining […]

It’s September 4th and that makes me happy!

by Tim Hauserman  I’ve been anticipating this date for weeks, perhaps even months. Sure July and August are always fun with a steady series of events such as the Concerts on The Commons and Truckee Thursday, but the middle of summer is also crowded. The kids are out of school so everyone heads away from […]

Ahh…September…now we’re talking!

By Tim Hauserman As August comes to an end it’s easy to bemoan the loss of summer. The mornings are getting chilly, and our thoughts start to turn to the the colder days of autumn.  But put away that sad face, often September is the best month of the year. The weather is usually warm […]

How about a canoe to Emerald Bay?

  By Tim Hauserman These days every summer morning you will see paddleboards and kayaks paddling along the shoreline of Lake Tahoe and Donner Lake. These light weight craft give folks the chance to get exercise while enjoying the beauty of our Sierra lakes. In the old days, bulkier wood or metal canoes were the […]

The seasons of Page Meadows.

By Tim Hauserman Here in the Sierra Nevada, Mother Nature knows that seasons can be fickle and short so she doesn’t mess around. Instead she gets right to doing what nature does best…producing off-spring, especially the plant variety. Even before the last flake of snow has fallen the melting cycle is in full swing. While […]
