A Place to Warm the Bones

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Last Monday afternoon, I was taken out of commission by a virus.  It’s been several days of chills, night sweats, and achy bones.  While doing couch time on the way to a mend, I couldn’t help thinking about one of my favorite places, a mere 20 miles east on the other side of the Sierra Nevada range from Lake Tahoe.

If one travels east over Kingsbury Grade from Lake Tahoe, they can find themselves at “David Walley’s Hot Springs,” near the early Nevada settlement of Genoa in Carson Valley. 

The area offers rare beauty that differs greatly from season to season, and the hour of the day. Anytime between late autumn, through early spring, is my favorite time to visit.  I think it's time!

I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on this photo, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website www.myrljeffcoat.com - Thank You!

I have not seen that place. What road is it off? I think my favorite is Mono Lake.

Hi Myrl, My comment seems to have disappeared. This photo is enchanting. Someone suggested it would make a great postcard and I would have to agree.

Mryl, Hope you are on the mend! /stay away from the measles outbreak in your area.  I've been MIA for about three weeks due to a horrible eye infection in both eyes, but at separate times. There were some days I couldn't even make out a sentence on my laptop, let alone ipad.  

This photo is breathtaking.  I'll bet those hot springs opened up your sinuses just thinking about them.

 

Stay healthy!
