Usually we are entering the best days at Tahoe with the kids back in school, the beaches and trails quiet and locals can enjoy everything the visitors have experienced all summer long. Unfortunately with the smoke, most locals are in lock down. Let’s all hope the fires will be out soon and we can still find time to get out and play.
