Early January 2014 found us in South Lake Tahoe in a very nice rented five-bedroom house in the Tahoe Meadows. A long-established gated community just one half mile from the casinos. Being the second week in January, it was almost deserted because of the lack of snow at the ski resorts.
Hooking Bailey and Chloe to my mountain bike, via "the Springer," with them wearing their mushing harnesses, we headed for the short ride to the lake shore.
There we found two flocks of Canada
Geese relaxing along the water's edge this cold January morning.
The mountains to the west had snow cover and the sun came out and lit up the eastern slopes before the sun hit the lake.
Since this was a "on-leash" complex, I followed the letter of the law and left the two dogs leashed up together in their mushing harnesses and lead.
After sending the birds drifting out into the lake, Bailey spotted the second flock to the east.
Of course, they had to send these birds away from the shore also. Chloe thought for a second to try out the water, but it was COLD!
