Flight from KTRK Truckee Tahoe to O22 Columbia Airport

Flight from KTRK Truckee Tahoe to O22 Columbia Airport

Columbia Cal-FireLast Thursday we flew down to Columbia Airport O22 to photograph the Cal Fire Fleet.

On the way down we flew over Lake Tahoe along the west shore, what a view!  The water was crystal clear and we had a slight tail wind which made for a quick smooth ride. Shortly after our arrival at Columbia Airport, Cal Fire was returning from a call, so we watched the fleet as each plane made a flawless landing.  The airport also has a grass strip. We saw a tail dragger come in for a not so flawless landing.  A Cal Fire crew member greeted us as we approached their fleet and escorted us around as I took photos.  He also answered several of our questions and we talked about what their jobs entailed.

After our visit, we prepared for our departure in the run-up area at the same time as Cal Fire.  We waited and watched the whole fleet depart, first the spotter, then both tankers and a helicopter, quite impressive.  Once we were in the air we could see the fire that they were heading to.

On the flight home we flew over Echo Lakes, it was amazing to see the amount of snow that is still in that area.

The Truckee Tahoe Airport KTRK, is conveniently located near Lake Tahoe.  This is a great place for a pilot to own a vacation home.

Shirley Canyon Hike, Squaw Valley, Ca

Paul Smith said on July 13th, 2011 filed under: ACTIVITIES, COMMUNITY, LOCAL AREA PHOTOS, LOCAL NEWS, PLACES TO SEE

We have been hearing about all the water in Shirley Canyon, so yesterday we decided to see it for ourselves.

We couldn’t believe how much water there was, the sound of it rushing was almost deafening.

There were several people taking advantage of the awesome weather to hike in.

All the snow this past winter has sure paid off.  If you have an opportunity, I encourage you to come to Lake Tahoe and enjoy all the incredible outdoor activities there are to do.

Snow Flowers at Lake Tahoe

Paul Smith said on June 28th, 2011 filed under: LOCAL AREA PHOTOS

Snowflowers at Lake TahoeThe Snow Flower also known as Snow Plant seems to be popping up all over the Tahoe basin.  If you’ve never seen a snow flower or just taken them for granted, stop and take a close look, they are quite interesting.  They seem to grow in shady areas where the ground is covered with pine needles.  Here is a link to an interesting article I found about Snow Flowers.

THIS PROPERTY HAS SOLD AND CLOSED ESCROW

Today I held an open house at Heratage Cove, Unit #35.

I walked down to the lake to check the lake level and I was amazed.

The water level is higher than I have ever seen it.  There were people playing on the beach in the warm sand and in the cool water.

The managers, Grant and Judy, were hard at work planting flowers and hosing off the decks.  They sure do a great job taking care of this place. Read the rest of this entry »
