Donner Lake


I like the view from here.  And the breeze.  And the cooler temps.


Driving into the Sierra Nevadas up Highway 80 heading to Donner Lake.  We have been back and forth a few times in the past few weeks looking for the perfect place and we finally found it.


We now have a small place on the north shore of Donner Lake.  The north shore is on the left in this image, which was taken from Donner Pass.  The lake is small and quiet, not nearly as busy as Lake Tahoe.  It is slightly wider than 1/2 mile and it is 2.7 miles long.  We look forward to exploring this area in all seasons.  Here’s my chance to see snow again ~ it has been a long time.


Stay tuned for more ~ but first we have cupboards to clean and a little organizing to do.  What do you think?  A Donner Lake Workshop for next summer?
