Chasing Summer

6 Aug

The weather wasn’t looking so glorious this past weekend in the bay area and I won’t have a free weekend to get up to Tahoe for a while so Saturday morning I just up and headed to the lake.  Em and Matt were actually in town as well and my other friends were headed up so it made a perfect combination for an R&R weekend.  The weather was beyond perfect and I was dipping in and out of the lake as necessary.  Towards the end of the day on Saturday, a mini storm rolled in and the clouds set the most beautiful picture.

I’m ready to go back now.

I hope you all had a great weekend as well 😀

Is winter finally on it’s way to the Sierras?!

12 Mar

I spent the weekend with my friends in Tahoe again and it was beyond beautiful.  It’s a tad eerie though, the lacking amount of snow that they have for this time of year.  After a sunny, beautiful snowboarding day at Sugarbowl on Saturday just playing in the slush, we took a scenic route home winding down towards Donner Lake.

The views of Donner Lake are so beautiful.

After a fun filled snowboard day on Saturday, we headed to Reno for another Monster Truck show!  We are on a roll, these things are literally so awesome.  However, we didn’t realize how good we had it last time when we saw them in Oakland.  The Reno venue was much smaller which didn’t allow for any rolls or mass destruction of machinery.  They did have much better in-between racing which included little dune trucks and dirt bike jumping!  I’ll post pictures from that soon 🙂

  On Sunday, I enjoyed a nice lunch with Em and then went to the Lake to shoot some photos of the storm coming in.  The colors really light up and contrast over amazing Lake Tahoe.  I think there may actually be some snow finally coming in this week and that’s great news for Tahoe.  I can’t wait to see and hear what becomes of this upcoming storm!

At this point, little snow pellets were flying towards me as the winds picked up.

It’s weird to see sand and not snow on the beaches this time of year!

Hopefully there is a huge storm about to blanket the Sierras and if so you bet I’ll be back there to make some turns and take some photos.

Sorry about my post on Friday, I was trying to embed the Kony 2012 video but was having technical difficulties.  None the less, check it out – it’s pretty amazing the change one person can make.

Happy Monday!

It had been too long

4 Nov

It’d been about three weeks since I’d been able to get out to the barn to ride and I’d really been missing it.  Even with the storm coming in, somehow I still think it’s one of the most beautiful places.

The clouds were moving somewhat fast in this :30s exposure.

Happy Friday!  Enjoy a great weekend 🙂

Another Rainy Day

25 Mar

The rain hasn’t stopped in a long time now.  I don’t really mind the rain but the wind has been so strong these past few days along with the rain, makes for an interesting walk to work.  Today the streets were strewn with abandoned umbrellas everywhere that had flipped themselves inside out.

It was the kind of wind and rain where you just brace yourself the entire time walking against it.   The water really accumulated throughout the area as well.  This planter was full to the top!

I know everyone is complaining about all the rain but I can’t wait for hopefully one of the most beautiful Spring times ever.  The colors are going to be so vibrant, I can’t wait.

I have a really good rainy day DIY Home Decor project coming up for my blog, I just need time to photo the process 🙂  Hopefully this weekend, I’ll get it up for anyone who wants something fun to do indoors this weekend!
