Squaw Valley’s Shirley Canyon

Shirley Canyon

Where is the audio?!  I love the sound of water flowing downstream over granite boulders, resting momentarily in small pools and then continuing the journey from mountain peaks.

The trail follows waterfalls and still pools

Shirley Canyonand is marked along the way. The path is obvious until you reach granite outcroppings during the last section.

The Sierra Nevada views are wonderful.

The Shirley Canyon trailhead is located in Squaw Valley, north of the tram building at the ski area at the end of Squaw Peak Road.

Lake Tahoe in the Spring

This clip was taken from the West Shore of Tahoe.  The reflection Heavenly Valley on the lake was beautiful.  What caught my eye was the lack of activity on the lake, empty buoys and one lone sailboat.
