Every year we migrate to the same spot (Donner Lake) and meet up with the same people (The Lackers).  And thank you Nancy and Bill for once again sharing your beautiful lake side home with us!

A Bald Eagle over Donner Lake! On the 4th of July! It might make me a little more nerdy for saying it, but it really did make my day getting a photo of one here so close to home. 🙂

After a whole day of swimming and cannon balls and now waiting for the sun to go down and the fireworks to begin!

Sunset over the Donner Pass

I loved the light reflecting off the water (and all the bats in the sky- top right)



covered the lens with my hand while the rocket went up and removed my hand during the explosion so that there wouldn't be a rocket trail in this photo
