Sand Harbor is one of the most popular beaches in all of Lake Tahoe. Its remote location, miles away from the casinos on a winding two-lane road, does nothing to stop people from flocking here on warm summer days and filling up the beach. Every fall this is also the home to a Shakespeare festival, with a permanent stage built just a few dozen yards from the water’s edge.

The other day we went down to Riverview Park in east Carson City, a series of trails that meander by the Carson River. While we were there we saw this herd of wild horses on the other side of the river. They didn’t wait around to pose for pictures, but I snapped a few while they were running off.

Sometimes when I’m at work I’ll come out of the door and run face-to-face into a herd of deer. The deer like to hang out in Carson City because there are a lot of green backyards with plenty of flowers and berries. The hills right outside of town are still recovering from a major fire six years ago, and foraging up there can be hard. So the herds come down to town and hang out. You see them in a lot of yards around town, but our yard seems to be a favorite. They come visit at least two or three times a month.

Last week we went to Lake Tahoe, to the beach at Sand Harbor. It was a chilly day in April so we had the whole beach to ourselves. In fact, it was so cold that it snowed the next day! So while we didn’t go in the water much, the Boyz had a ton of fun scrambling over the rocks.

I’ve had the domain name, ScottSchrantz.com, for almost three years. But I’ve never done anything interesting with it. For the longest time it’s just been redirected to my FriendFeed page, which is just an aggregator of all the stuff I post elsewhere. But I’ve always known that this site needs to be something more. A place to put my resume and biographical information for one thing. But also a place to do a photo blog, or to write, or other interesting things. So now I’m starting it, but the hard part is still in front of me, designing a good theme for the site that will do everything I want.
