Visiting the Lake Tahoe area. We spent some time in the weather. Raining most of the time, we ventured out to see Emerald Bay and hike around the desolation wilderness. The weather didn’t lend itself to the typical emerald blue color that we are accustomed to when visiting Tahoe. But dramatic and earthy tones made for a great photographic mood. The pint of Guinness after didn’t hurt either.
