Tahoe City, CA (Part 3) - Truckee/Tahoe February 2016

Back in February 2016, I took at trip to Truckee, CA and Lake Tahoe (both California and Nevada side). Most of the photos are of snowy winter scenery. I visited places such as Donner Lake, Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Abandoned Historical Central Pacific Railroad (CPRR) Tunnels, and more. I took many photos and are here to share with you. The photos will be split over several blog posts. If you have been following me on here, you'd know there has been a ton of stuff happening in my life such as my old computer breaking down and health issues I've had to deal with. This delayed my photo processing by a very long time which is why I am only posting them now. I also did vlogs on this trip. If you are interested in viewing them, you can do so here.

While on the drive from Donner Lake to Lake Tahoe, I pulled out at a turnout to get a photo of Truckee River. This is already considered to be in Tahoe City, CA on Google Maps. This is shot on the side of SR-89 near the Truckee River Bike Trail. I slipped and fell trying to get down from the turnout to get this photo. I lost my lens cap somewhere here I think... By the time I got to Lake Tahoe, I noticed I didn't have my lens cap on my lens and it wasn't in my pocket either... What luck! I did order replacements from eBay later that day though. I'm guessing no one found that lens cap because I had my phone number and email written on it. Another guess is maybe they kept it as a souvenir from the all famous Sunny Wu. Just joking around, I'm not that much of a celebrity. :)

Now I arrive at Commons Beach in Tahoe City, CA. This is a photo shot towards Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City Marina. As you can see, the entire beach is covered by a thick layer of snow. It was very hard walking through it.
