Situated on the border of two states, California and Nevada, Tahoe is the 10th deepest lake in the world.  With 39 Trillion gallons, if emptied, it contains enough water to cover the entire state of California over a foot deep.  Oddly enough, the name Tahoe probably derives from the Washoe Indian word "Da-ow-a-ga" which means "by the edge of the lake".

And by the edge, there is a beach.  What else? . . .  It was there, da-ow-a-ga, by the edge of the lake, where I decided to take in the sound of the lapping waves, to catch some winter rays, one frigid 20 degree morn before my porn shoot.  While some of the followings pics might give you an idea of what a Colby corpse should look like, fear not, I am still alive.  And nothing makes me feel more alive than a day in the sunshine at the beach, no matter what the ambient temperature.

  1. Great photos of Tahoe! It makes me want to go back there for a visit again. Being a native Houstonian, you might appreciate this fun fact: when tropical storm Allison hit Houston in 2001, it dumped an estimated 30 trillion gallons of water onto the city in 48 hours time--almost the equivalent of emptying Lake Tahoe on top of the city.
