  • Beneath Big Blue · Diving to protect Lake Tahoe

  • The majesty of meteor showers

    By Priya Hutner on September 28, 2016
    Meteor showers provide a magnificent show in the late-night Tahoe sky. A few years back, I hiked Mount Judah Loop at 1 a.m. to witness a lunar eclipse and was blown away by the multitude of shooting stars. Each August offers the spectacular Perseids showers, and Alyssa Ganong and I adventured out for a late-night hike during the recent Perseids […]
