Try these wonderful wildflower hikes at Lake Tahoe-Truckee
Rawhide Drive (about a 3-mile steady climb, great for mountain biking), or the shortest and easiest route — from the end of Silver Tip Drive in Talmont Estates.
Whichever way you get to the meadows, once there, be sure to stroll through all of them. Each meadow has its own unique combination of flowers. Even if you arrive at the meadows too early for the flowers, you may still catch another treat: the loud cacophony of millions of unseen frogs. These meadows were once prime grazing ground for Basque sheepherders. Keep your eyes peeled for an oven, located slightly off the trail near the lowest meadow, and the sheepherders’ lonely carvings into aspen trees.
Directions: Tahoe Rim Trail Ward Creek Boulevard Trailhead: Drive 2.5 miles south of Tahoe City on Highway 89 to turn right at Pineland Drive. At the fork, turn left following the sign to Ward Valley. Drive another mile to the TRT trailhead. On the north (right), the trail heads to Page Meadows. On the south (left), the trail heads to Twin Peaks.
Silver Tip Drive Trailhead: Drive 2 miles south of Tahoe City on Highway 89. Turn right on Pine and right on Tahoe Park Heights. Follow Big Pine, the center road, at the top of the hill. Then left on Silver Tip. Follow to the end.
East Shore: Marlette Lake Trail
The route includes open meadows flush with wildflowers, deep forests of pine, and extensive stands of aspens. High above stands the impressive visage of Snow Valley Peak, and the end of the hike is the lovely Marlette Lake. The trail heads out from Spooner Lake on a long steady climb to a saddle, before descending down to the shore of the lake.
To the lake and back is about 10 miles. If you are up for a bit more, turn right when you reach Marlette and wander along the lake. At the junction where you find a restroom, go straight ahead, heading north. The next half-mile provides an amazingly varied sampling of wildflowers.
Directions: Take Highway 28 from Incline Village 12 miles to the Spooner Lake and turn off on your left. Restrooms and parking fee.
North Lake Tahoe: Ophir Creek/Tahoe Meadows
Head to Tahoe Meadows at the top of the Mt. Rose Highway for easy access to beautiful fields of flowers. From the Tahoe Rim Trail’s Tahoe Meadows Trailhead, you could take the easy interpretive trail that winds along a small creek, or you could head south on the TRT, which crosses the flower-laden Tahoe Meadows.
When the TRT reaches Ophir Creek, you can walk downstream on wood boardwalk and hike one of the three easy meadow loop trails that wind through the meadows and forest nearby. Another option is to begin at the Ophir Creek Trail. Whichever route you take, look for waves of wildflowers in the meadows and tightly bunched patches near the narrow creek lining.
Directions: From Incline Village, take Highway 431 (Mt. Rose Highway) 7 miles toward Reno. When the road begins to level off, and you see an expansive meadow to your right, you have arrived. The Ophir Creek Trail starts just at the edge of this meadow, the TRT is about a half-mile farther up on the right. Stay on trail, as the meadow is fragile.
South Lake Tahoe: Meiss Meadows/Showers Lake
Perhaps my favorite place for wildflowers in the Tahoe Sierra is the area between Carson Pass and a few miles north of Showers Lake along the Pacific Crest Trail/Tahoe R... (The Union of Grass Valley)Jan 8, 2016

She is also survived by her daughter, Tiffany Scott Condit, her husband, Christian, their children, Abigail and Carter of Louisville Ky.; son, Chad Scott, his wife, Lisa, and their children, Emma, Lydia and Ian of Ellicott City, Md.; and sister-in-law Rida, and her husband, Larry Knutzen of Cedar Bluffs.
She adored her nieces and nephew. She will also be missed by her many dear friends who meant the world to her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Irene Lyddon; and both of her sisters, Gayle Doud and Deb Lyddon.
The funeral will be 10:30 a.m. Friday at First United Methodist Church in Fremont. Visitation will be from 3-8 p.m. Thursday at Ludvigsen Mortuary in Fremont with family present from 6-8 p.m. Burial will be in Memorial Cemetery in Fremont.
