Visit Lake Tahoe it is just about one hour away from Fair Play. You can go Highway 50 or Highway 88. Daryl and Cindy quite often go one highway up to Lake Tahoe and the other one back to the bed and breakfast. Both highways are beautiful but their views are wonderfully different.

This picture of Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe was taken early morning October 22, 2013. We'ver never seen the lake as smooth as this day. Probably a once in a life time shot.

This baby alpaca has a family at the Alpacas of El Dorado ranch. There are sevral other alpaca ranches in the Fair play area: Retiredice Alpacas, Alpaca of Somerset Farm and Rancho Margarita Alpacas. Alpacas are curious animals and they will come close and stare in your face. They are very docile, friendly and group together because they are very social.

In Fair Play and all of El Dorado County there are deer. Here are three young bucks on our protery. El Dorado County has an abundance of wildlife. While driving keep a sharp eye for deer jumping into the roads. Mountain lions, bobcats, raccoons, squirrels, bear and lots of other critters live everywhere in El Dorado County. So if you stop at one of the many vista points to enjoy the beauty, look for chipmunks and snakes. Rattlesnakes do live close to humans, but are sledom seen. Look for them at all times. 

El Dorado County is rich with history; Discovery of Gold, Pony Express, Wgaon Train Routes, Kit Carson, Home of the original 49ers Prospectors, Mining towns, Gold Mines, Indian Diggins, Miwok Indians. These are just a sampling of the history in our back yard.
