About Me & My Family

I’m a single mom with a 4 yr old boy. My two passions are traveling and raising my son. I love being a mom; there’s no place I’d rather be then with my son. I work full time and love to exercise.

Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
I’ll never forget flying home from Honolulu with my 1.6 month old son on Delta. The plane did not have milk for the flight and even though I boarded early, not one person thought to inform me that the plane was not stocked with milk. My son was still drinking from a bottle at this time and freaked out over having to go 5 hours without a bottle. This old cranky lady behind me was loudly complaining the whole flight about how she was tired of hearing my son cry (as if I wasn’t.) I wanted to scream (but did not) at every employee on the plane for not informing me the plane was out of milk until we were up in the air.

North Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museums and Exhibits

Lake Tahoe is internationally known as one of our Nation’s most spectacular areas. Its exciting, rich history both natural (glaciers, volcanoes) and cultural (Washoe people, wagon trains, lumber barons, miners and millionaires) fascinate both residents and visitors. The North Lake Tahoe Historical Society was founded in 1969 by a group of concerned citizens who were passionate about preserving Tahoe’s history, and telling its stories through its three museums located in Tahoe City.

Special Exhibits:

Woven Legacy: A Collection of Dat-so-la-lee Works, 1900-1921:
It is the early 20th century, and a Washoe weaver named Dat-so-la-lee sits on the grassy shoreline of Lake Tahoe, unknowingly weaving her name into history. Dat So La Lee is one of the most famous Washoe weavers of all time. These wondrous minatures -- mindboggling to behold -- are displayed in a re-creation of Hurley's Cottage, home of Amy Cohn's Tahoe City curio shop, courtesy of collection owner Gene Quintana. Don't miss this rare opportunity to view such an unique piece of Tahoe history.

Postcards from Tahoe:
Explore the unique history of Tahoe through the images of early 20th century postcards and messages.

Gatekeeper’s Museum – the log cabin at Fanny Bridge, where highways 89 and 28 meet in Tahoe City. Gatekeeper’s Museum is located on an ancient Washoe campsite. The museum contains an eclectic collection of Tahoe history, including photographic collections, oral histories and transcription, newspapers, court ledgers, maps and written materials, letters, clothing, artifacts and furniture. During the past 34 years, NLTHS has accumulated an incredibly diverse collection of Tahoe memorabilia, including, Native American baskets, historical photographs, oral histories, maps, archival documents, newspapers and artifacts. One of our most extensive collections includes thousands of historical photographs of Lake Tahoe and its inhabitants, dating from the late 1800’s. These photos capture the historical progression of Tahoe history, from its Native inhabitants through the gold rush, westward movement, mining and logging eras and the establishment of the tourism industry of Lake Tahoe.
