Lake Tahoe is amazing!

Incline Village, located on the border of Nevada and California, but on the Nevada side, the north east shore of Lake Tahoe.   The Hyatt Resort, Spa and Casino is a great place to stay.  Located right on the lake, the hotel offers all kinds of amenities, including a bar on their pier called Pier 111 Bar, you can find the link below.

If you never have visited Lake Tahoe, you really should try to, add that to your bucket list! 🙂  It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world.  The lake is beautiful, and pristine, and one of the largest alpine lakes in North America.  It is also the second deepest, right after, Crater Lake in Oregon.  Which is another amazing lake, that you should visit! 🙂 It’s about 7-8 hours drive from Tahoe, depending on the route.

Huge metal cooking pot looks rusted, and was part of the Olampoli estate.

Olampoli State Park, Highway 101, California

Pictured is a very old cement stairway to nothing, it's probably burned in the past.
Old stairway to a burned out building.

 

Olampoli State park is located right near the county lines of Sonoma county and Marin county.  This beautiful state park is just off the Highway 101 and isn’t far from San Francisco, or the nearby city of Santa Rosa, almost in the middle of these two cities.  Rolling hills and wine country could describe the area that surrounds Olampoli State Park.

 

 

 

 

 

This beautiful state park is so easy to miss off of highway 101 north of San Francisco south of Petaluma, CA. Believe it or not the rock band Grateful Dead lived here in 1966 and Janis Joplin has been known to have stayed here.

The grounds are amazing with beautiful old trees, gardens, an old fountain, and many historical signs explaining the history of the site. There are wild turkeys on the grounds also. If you prefer to just take a hike up the mountain you can do that too. There is also a huge Try Pot, which I included a picture about the history of this pot.

“The name “Olompali” comes from the Coast Miwok language and likely means “Southern village” or “Southern people”.

This is a beautiful place to swim deep, clear waters with lots of huge rock formations.

Canyon Creek, Junction City, California

Beautiful Canyon Creek in Junction City, CA, is a great place to swim, large rocks and beautiful clear deep waters makes a great place to dive and swim.
Canyon Creek swimming hole.

Went swimming at this swimming hole today, it was very hot, and the water perfectly cool. It was also very refreshing and beautiful. There were kids there and adults jumping off the rocks, into the deeper parts of the water. Although there are still fires burning around this area, it happened to be pretty clear at the time we were there.

 

Although swim season is just about over, the days are still pretty hot, and I am sure people are still swimming now.  The water is probably a bit cooler now.  But in the hot days it’s refreshing.  There are still many fires happening all around California and the skies can be a bit overcast, and smokey at times.  Pictured here it was a smokey day.
