INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — We are so fortunate to live in such an amazing place — not only is it beautiful but we can enjoy beautiful sunny days with cool Tahoe nights. No wonder visitors keep coming to Tahoe. I know that many have had guests in and out like all month long. Tom and Mary Rosenthal have been fortunate to have lots of family from the Wisconsin area in town this month. And I must admit it is great to have family visit too.
