We were snagged in Tahoe City, referred to as the heart and soul of Lake Tahoe. And, indeed, it was the heart and soul of our lives for a few days. The town has beautifully celebrated their waterfront with great landscaping and native plant restoration. It also has outstanding bike paths, nice restaurants, excellent coffee shops and they topped it off with an excellent and lively concert in the park. Dead Winter Carpenters played the Sunday night we were there -- great! In addition to all of this, the State Campground, right in town, right on the bike path, and right on the lake's edge, is small, well outfitted, comfortable, private and was a great home-away-from home for three nights. We ate and biked and walked and did more Heart on the Trail setup computing. We now move on to Donner Pass.
