Share on: Share on Google+

This week, Eye on Travel broadcasts from the nearly century-old Granlibakken hotel in Lake Tahoe, California. Mike Schwartz, Fire Chief at the North Tahoe Fire Protection District, joins the program to talk about one of the largest fires in California history. Katherine Hill, of Tahoe Weekly Magazine, on the cooperation between both California and Nevada to preserve Lake Tahoe… Bill Clark of SNOW, the Sierra Nevada Olympic & Winter Sports Museum, on the history of the gold miners and how they changed Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley forever. And, if you’re wondering about this boat, it’s called Star Dust, and it’s 84 years old. I got to pilot it around the lake and stopped over at the old boathouse (from The Godfather, Part II). So repeat after me…”Fredo, I knew it was you…” There’s all this and more as Eye on Travel broadcasts from the Granlibakken in Lake Tahoe, California.
