Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting SAN FRANCISCO (CALIFORNIA) and LAKE TAHOE (CALIFORNIA/NEVADA) - From February 1st to February 19th, 2011 - #008!




HEAVENLY (VII) !

This picture was taken from the slopes of HEAVENLY SKI RESORT, as one looks towards the deserts of NEVADA! It was my 5th/last day of ski in that area!

Again, trying to photograph the uniqueness of that place: the SIERRA NEVADA and the DESERTS OF NEVADA simultaneously before my eyes! No matter where I was, I always thought there were beauty everywhere: trees, snow, mountains and desert! While skiing, I might reckon that half of the time I spend on the slopes I spend watching the landscape, looking for good images and taking pictures!

I also must say that I was surprised by the beauty of that place and also by the amount of ski resorts around LAKE TAHOE: 15 total, I think!

Following my aim of skiing in many places all over the World, last year I decided I'd like to ski in the LAKE TAHOE AREA (in the border of the States of CALIFORNIA and NEVADA, in the SIERRA NEVADA/USA)! By doing so, I'd visit one of the most beautiful mountain regions in North America and also one of the most beautiful cities in the World: SAN FRANCISCO!

Flying SÃO PAULO-NEW YORK-SAN FRANCISCO-RENO (some minor changes while doing that), this was the first entire trip I planned and arranged all by myself and using internet only (flights, buses & hotels)! The fact was that when I arrived in NYC, my next flight (United) to San Francisco, together with all the other United flights after 6pm had been cancelled! So, I had to take a shuttle from the JFK to Penn Station, a train from there to Washington D.C., where I'd go to Dulles International Airport, so I could get an early morning flight finally to San Francisco... and so I did! Stayed one day in SFO and the flew to RENO, where I got a prescheduled bus to SOUTH LAKE TAHOE!
