Scenic Splendor: Lake Tahoe

Scenic splendor...

Sacred space.

Silent silhouettes

of grace.

Sanctuary...

Secret spot.

Solemn setting

time forgot.

Shade and shimmer...

Solid stone.

Soaring sentinels

stand alone.

{Sweetest sight

we've ever known.}

Lake Tahoe is a favorite spot for our family too. Gorgeous photos.

So beautiful.

On a side note, I can't believe I missed your post yesterday. Well said. I used to devour the paper and internet, watch the news religiously. Now--no paper, little internet, news occasionally. I can't stand the fighting. And I feel like no one is telling the truth. It's all sound bites and back bites. No more for me, but what does this mean for our country?

Your pictures are beautiful! I haven't been to Lake Tahoe since I was a child but I can see that it would be well worth a trip. And that last picture of you and Dave is so cute. I LOVE you in a hat!

Cheryl said...

Lake Tahoe is so beautiful, Sue! I've only seen it from the air as i fly over on the way to California I hope to see it in person way day soon!

PS: We are battening down the hatches here waiting for the hurricane ...let's pray it isn't a bad one!

Darlene said...

How perfectly gorgeous that place is. Can you imagine living there all the time? I'll bet you would love it if only the altitude didn't get to you!

These pictures are outstanding. I was wishing I could have gotten one from the window of our hotel on the 9th floor of Harvey's. We left our camera in the cabin and only realized after we left that we could have taken one with Dick's I-phone. Oh well. Any one of these pictures would make a beautiful picture for any room in the house.

By the way, I loved the poetry that went with them.

Judie said...

Sue, I have never seen Lake Tahoe, and your photos are beautiful. So are your words.

so beautiful. We did a lake in NH this summer and it was so beautiful. Rocks and mountains and pine trees and water and sand...just lots of my favorite things...

Jenny said...

Lake Tahoe is so astonishing.

It just makes your heart sigh with the beauty of it all.

Love that bottom picture. You are so lovely, Miss Sue. Inside and out!

Not that I have x-ray vision.

And I wasn't talking specifically about your liver or spleen or anything.

I hope you know what I meant!

ha!

Thanks for linking. Love the serene verse.

A+
