    Favorite thing: I don't really have a favourite thing about South Lake Tahoe, but whilst roaming around, I met this Fillipino guy and his family. His wife was taking a photo of her husband and son, so I asked if they would like me to take one of them all, which they did. So here am I with some guy I never met before, and don't even know his name, haha. But that's what travel is all about, don't you think?

    What's it like to live here?

    Favorite thing: Lake Tahoe is a popular summer and winter resort. It is nestled in an out-of-the-way part of California and that may be one of it's biggest draws.

    It seems that many of the residents are an off-shoot breed of the mountain folk found in the USA in the early years of it's development.

    No, not the "hillbilly" type. Those people who love nature and the great outdoors way of living. Those who can withstand the harsh elements of winter in the mountains. Those who are content to live in a small community and who enjoy the long winter nights.

    Of course, the many tourists, skiers, hikers and gamblers who venture up the hill make the place a little more crowded and lively during the seasons. However, there is a time, between summers and winters that the place is quiet, relaxing and homey, in a mountain-man kind of way.

    Fondest memory: One of my favorite moments was sitting on the back deck of the cabin and because of so many trees the near by homes could not be seen. The only thing heard was one blue jay calling to another and the scampering of a squirrel up one of the big redwood in the yard.

    It's a great place for New Year's

    by Nexus7 Written Oct 16, 2003

    Favorite thing: This place was fantastic during New Year's. Every person in their 20s was there and they were all drunk. So drunk they have to call the riot police in.

    Fondest memory: Not getting arrested this time
