After studying for University finals, or commuting to and from University in Downtown Portland. Or, after taking a long drive – such as driving from Alaska to Oregon, or driving to and from Lake Tahoe from Oregon. I would like to take a day or two to unwind from the driving or from studying for finals. Up to a few days of unwinding and do close to nothing but to adjust to the local area that I’m in.
Another way I would like to unwind is to read a book or a few books if I have the time to read them. If I am able to read a good book – with 300 to 750 pages (give or take) per book and my mind is the only thing that is active.
Well, things have changed for worse over the last few days, to the point where I would myself and my brother would be taking a road trip to Lake Tahoe. Which would be another one year apart from our last trip there.
The circumstances of this road trip which changed our plans of going sooner. We will be there for about a month or two, before we head to Utah for a bit of time. There is one good thing about going sooner is that I’m able to take more photographs all around Lake Tahoe. Along with other points of interest in the region. Well, possible points of interests in the region.
Though, it doesn’t help that I have three weeks left of university classes for the summer term.
Anyways, I would be spending some more time at Lake Tahoe for a bit longer than last year – which is a good thing. Assuming I would be able to get the car fixed as soon as possible.
This post was prompted by a daily prompt called Road Tripping. (I know this post is a few days later than I wanted to post on the web.)
Then, most likely we will be coming back to the northwest to do a few things before heading to Utah for a bit.
In the above are three routes that I might take to reach South Lake Tahoe, California. For some reason I’ve like to take road trips to Lake Tahoe during the summer months. Though, time does fly when I’m at Lake Tahoe which is a pain of the backside to no end when I was growing up in California.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be going through the photograph files on this site and updating information on some photographs – like the name, alt text and adding descriptions to them.
Also, during this time I might be uploading more photographs that I took while staying at Lake Tahoe in 2013. I’m still going through those photographs and seeing what to upload exactly to this site. In addition to editing them a little to look better.
When I added some more photographs to this site, I’ll be making a post along a sample gallery when I’ve made a new gallery setup.
When we travel, we’re reminded that everything is connected by a beautifully intricate, invisible thread. We are filled with wanderlust — exploring a foreign country or city, an exotic island, or mountains in the mist. Wherever we are, we indulge in the novelty of each moment.
Each place has its own charm, energy, and ambience that will leave its trace in your soul. A travel photographer’s job is to capture this while it’s still there, available to all of your senses.

When you return home or move to a different country, time passes, and those photographs from your wanderings have the power to mentally teleport you to another time. Photography has the power to make people feel like they are right there with…
I just want to let anyone that is interested that I’ve added two short videos that I’ve made last September on to this site and they are located on a dedicated page. You can also reach the videos through the Videos Page.
