North Lake Tahoe

There is really nothing that mountains and time can not heal.

To be reminded that the Earth was not made by humans for humans. That sometimes, flat-irons, high-speed internet, or remote controls are not needed.

“If you are faced with a mountain, you have several options.
You can climb it and cross to the other side.
You can go around it.
You can dig under it.
You can fly over it.
You can blow it up.
You can ignore it and pretend it’s not there.
You can turn around and go back the way you came.
Or you can stay on the mountain and make it your home.” 
 ~ Vera Nazarian



  1. Robinson Jeffers, one of my favorite poets, said : “…when the cities lies at the monster’s feet there are left the mountains”, meaning that when the cities become corrupt we always have the option to flee to the mountains. Your pictures help us see why. Thank you Tahira.

    • Thank you, Malcolm. I appreciate it. Robinson Jeffers sounds like someone I definitely want to read more of! As I just told Sara above you, John Muir said it so simply & so beautifully “Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.”
