Just returned from a relaxing trip to Lake Tahoe. I hadn’t been there since I was a kid but it was just as magnificent as I remembered. The first day in Tahoe I hiked up to Page Meadows. I’m really not sure if it is supposed to be spelled Page or Paige – half the signs, books and maps spell it Page and the other half spell it Paige… Who knows. But it was a beautiful hike nonetheless.
I was immediately greeted by many Western Tanagers, Western Wood-Pewees, Hairy Woodpeckers and many beautiful wildflowers.
I also checked out Tahoe Meadows and hiked the loop trail up to Mt. Rose Campground and back to the Tahoe Rim Trail. There were many nesting Wilson’s Warblers, Fox Sparrows, Lincoln’s Sparrows and Clark’s Nutcrackers calling in the distance – although none ever came near enough to photograph.
