Love Hiking? Tahoe Trails Being Expanded and Rebuilt

Fish said that Angora has been an area of concentration for TAMBA recently and that in addition to getting the main project mostly done, TAMBA was able to complete the 2 miles of trail that connects Tahoe Mountain Road to Angora Lookout.

“The Angora project has been one of our biggest pushes,” said Fish. “We’ve had a lot of volunteers and help with that so we’ve got a lot of work done.”

Joell said that thanks to all of the organizations and volunteers who make trail maintenance and building a priority, a lot of the winter damage to the terrain has been largely mitigated.

“Together, we were able to manage a lot the trail damage from last winter,” he said. “There are still things that need to be done, but the most serious things have been taken care of.”

There are still issues with erosion and other weather-related factors that will likely take a couple more years to fully address, however.

The North Shore has several projects going on as well, according to Joell. The Incline Flume and Elevator Shaft trails have been getting some attention this summer.

“There was a grant made available for us to work on shoring up what is known as the ‘slide section’ of the [Incline Flume] trail,” said Joell. “There’s a lot of decomposed granite so you usually end up sliding back a few steps for everyone one you take forward. There will be some type of retaining wall or gabion baskets, something like that, put in place. That work won’t begin until next year.”

Joell said that the Elevator Shaft Trail’s route was close to a creek drainage area, which led to erosion that caused unsustainable conditions.

“One of our crew leaders, John Clausen, is managing that project. He identified a route that is much more sustainable and even has better views. We got the project approved by the Forest Service this spring and we’ve had workdays going on every Wednesday and Saturday,” said Joell. “They’re going to be getting into some rocky areas that will slow down construction, but I think we’re still on schedule to get that one done this year with the turnout we’ve been getting.”

According to Joell, TAMBA has gained forward momentum with the Ocelot Trail that is near the same area as Elevator Shaft. The Ocelot had some serious erosion and, like elevator shaft, had a route that wasn’t sustainable.

“It took us several years to get into that area since it had been adopted by California State Parks into their trail system,” he said. “They’re not as used to having people doing volunteer trail work out there as the Forest Service is, but we’re scheduled to start on that next Tuesday, the 22nd.”

TAMBA was able to use funds from a grant provided by the recreational gear company REI to assist with that build.

According to TAMBA, there will be several volunteer opportunities coming up and some fundraising festivities as well. TAMBA will be present at the Tahoe Mountain Bike and Brew Festival, Aug. 26 and 27. The event will be hosted at Divided Sky bar and restaurant in Meyers. It will feature food, music, mountain bike riding, demonstrations and more.

One of the final events for TAMBA is the Sept. 2 “Rose to Toads” ride. The ride is a 62-mile trek up the east side of Lake Tahoe.

TAMBA said it has been able to raise significant funds for trail projects through this ride and expects to have hundreds in attendance. TAMBA usually wraps up work projects around mid-October, so the next couple months will be ideal for volunteering and getting involved.

TAMBA recently completed most of its scheduled trail building at the Angora Ridge project site. The organization will be moving forward with projects until suspending seasonal work around mid-October.

When it comes to the hundreds of miles of trails contained in the Tahoe Basin, the summer is the busiest time of year for maintenance, building and activity.

Whether you’re a hiker, biker or horse rider, having a safe and fun trip that is easy to access is all part of the Tahoe experience.

Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association (TAMBA) has been spending the summer rolling up its sleeves for dozens of hours of trail work and also securing funds for projects.

Some of the most recent notable progress involves the Angora Ridge and the Tahoe Mountain Road projects.

“We have multiple projects going on all around the lake,” said Kevin Joell, trails director at TAMBA. “The Angora Ridge trail is one we just did a lot of work on — that was a TAMBA funded project. We had some assistance from the Forest Service that was augmented with our volunteers on workdays. We funded some hand-crews from the American Conservation Experience to come out so we could get all the labor done.”

According to TAMBA, the Angora Ridge project is almost completely done, save for a few minor adjustments that will need to be made over the next several weeks. The Mule Deer trail is a crucial element to this project, TAMBA representatives said.

“We have the Mule Deer Trail connector under construction,” said Ben Fish, TAMBA president. “That will connect the neighborhoods to the Angora Lookout.”

Fish said that Angora has been an area of concentration for TAMBA recently and that in addition to getting the main project mostly done, TAMBA was able to complete the 2 miles of trail that connects Tahoe Mountain Road to Angora Lookout.

Turn Your House Into A Home

by Lakeshore Realty

 

Fellow crafters, I’m sure you’ve noticed the abundance of project resources that happen to grow naturally just outside our windows, such as mossy trees, pinecones, pine needles, granite rocks and more.

They’re also known as supplies — and you can take advantage.

Amid such breathtaking 360-degree views, one way to decorate your Tahoe-Truckee home without competing against nature’s beauty is to bring the outdoors in this summer.

 

Simple, natural and strikingly beautiful, terrariums are wonderful for bringing life to any room inside your mountain home.

Plus, they’re a fun and easy project to create, and you don’t have to have a green thumb to keep it looking beautiful — succulent plants are resilient little guys!

Below are some simple directions to decorative, at-home terrarium and air plant projects to add a splash of nature to your home’s décor.

you will need

For the terrarium(s): Choose your favorite decorative glass pots, hanging glass bulbs, or glass holiday tree ornaments.

Small, indoor plants: Be sure to pick low-to-moderate sunlight, low maintenance plants.

Air plants: These are for hanging decorative bulbs or sculpture pieces.

Soil: Gather just enough soil for the terrarium plants; air plants do not require soil.

Tahoe’s natural resources: Choose among moss, twigs and pine needles as optional additions.

TO ASSEMBLE

Any decorative pot can make a great terrarium, so pick one with an open side or top that reflects your style.

Be sure your plants are small enough to comfortably fit inside the terrarium of your choice (factor in their growth expectancy — keep it small).

Add soil to the bottom of a clean terrarium pot and make a space for the plant inside. Then, cover with additional soil and press firmly to secure the plant in place — we don’t want them tipping over!

Arrange bushier plants in the back with smaller succulents in front, using as many or as few plants as you’d like.

Add moss, small pinecones, rocks and anything you find in your backyard to add a little character.

ANOTHER FUN IDEA

Fill glass holiday ornaments with a few pieces of moss, twigs and pine needles for a natural and simple tree decoration. Since the holidays have passed, you can add the ornaments (tie-side down) in a decorative basket of potpourri or pinecones for a beautiful table arrangement.

HANGING TERRARIUMS

Air plants are gorgeous, low-maintenance plants that bring the outdoors inside. No need for soil or daily watering, simply let them sit in a bowl of water for about 15 minutes, once a week. Dab any excess water on a paper towel before setting in the glass bulb to avoid water spots.
