Proud to report that the Ski & Ride issue of Tahoe Quarterly is on stands and it looks beautiful! This is a fun issue—some interesting stories, including one about the expansion of the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Center and another exploring Granite Chief Wilderness. For the Arts section, I profiled the concertmaster for the Reno Philharmonic (as well as the Nevada Opera and Reno Chamber Orchestra), Dr. Ruth Lenz. She’s an incredibly talented violinist, who manages to balance her numerous musical organizations, teaching violin and life with two young children, as well as her hobbies, which include hiking and horses. Very impressive!
In other news, I finished proofing the Winter issue of TQ on Wednesday (look for it on stands the first or second week of December!) and spent Thursday interviewing and touring for three of the articles I’m writing for the Mountain Home issue. Some beautiful—and very inspired—homes. I came out of my last tour determined to build a living wall of succulents inside my home. That resolve quickly faded, but it was very cool to see it done well in someone else’s home!
