Tangled Vines: An Evening with Frances Dinkelspiel at Lake Tahoe

Hellman MansionBeyond Lake Tahoe’s natural beauty, is a rich history of California’s Gold Rush, and how that flourished this beautiful area. Visitors flock to Truckee and Tahoe in droves to escape the hustle and bustle in the mountains and at the alpine lake – they’ve been doing it for over a century, the only exception being their mode of transportation and the magnitude of the ski resorts today. (What it would have been to travel only by train and steamer from San Francisco!)

Taking time to discover the gems of history in Tahoe is almost a rite of passage in knowing this place like the back of your hand. The Hellman-Ehrman Mansion (a California State Park) is no exception. Situation on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe, the mansion offers a glimpse into Northern California’s opulent history.

So why not spend a little time getting to know Tahoe’s past? Take a break from kayaking or boating or hiking Blackwood Canyon, and spend an evening with acclaimed author Frances Dinkelspiel at Hellman-Ehrman Mansion on July 20. Frances will discuss her newest book, “Tangled Vines” over the course of the summer’s evening at the mansion.

Step back in time, enjoy tasty hor d’oeuvres and fine wines while learning all about the greed, murder, obsession and arson that took place in the Napa Valley vineyards of California. Dinkelspiel explores the colorful and dynamic past of California’s wine industry, at one of Lake Tahoe’s most historic and dynamic places.

Seating is limited. Purchase your ticket by calling 530.583.9911 or sierrastateparks.org


Keep Tahoe Fire Safe: Defensible Space and Campfire Safety

Crystal Bay DS Block Party Flyer (1)

There’s nothing quite like a clear summer’s night star gazing at the night sky over Lake Tahoe next to a smoldering camp fire, or grilling on the back deck while the local deer mull around at sunset. The Sierras are a splendid break from the hustle and bustle, the busyness of our everyday lives, where we can enjoy the wildness of Tahoe.

Though it’s the perfect season to play all day in the fresh air and cozy up around the campfire with loved ones, it’s also wildfire season when locals are on high alert. Campers, hikers and backpackers are also out in droves. In order to preserve our favorite summer playground, we need to practice wildfire caution – come prepared with water and/or bucket to douse a fire while camping, set up an adequate fire ring around a campfire, increase our defensible space, and so on.

Think First Tahoe has established a new initiative to encourage residents and visitors alike to practice wildfire prevention, whether that’s out camping in Tahoe backcountry and following legal campfire practices, or increasing defensible space around your home. Both are equally important.

Join others on Saturday, June 25 from 12PM-2PM at the Tahoe Biltmore and Lodge Casino for a Defensible Space Block Party! Meet your neighbors and local fire district and learn new ways to create defensible space around your home. Guests will also have access to free greenwaste dumpsters, and enjoy tasty food and drinks!
