Every time, no joke, every time – I visit the galleries in California I get asked the question; “Do you have anything from Tahoe?”  Pay special attention to the words used there in that question, especially the one ‘anything’.

Usually, when someone asks if I have an image from some location, they are more interested in showing their friends where they’ve been than they are in actually looking to put a piece on their walls at home.  So, for years, I have rejected the idea of ever getting an image from Tahoe.  And the more people asked for one the more firm I was in my desire not to go there.

I wasn’t even planning on stopping by, maybe just a quick turn off the highway while on my way elsewhere, I thought.  A local stopped and said hello while I waited for sunset.  When asked if it was going to be a good one?, he said “No chance.”  Hmmmm.

See Ya On the Trail!
