Redcliffs at Kirkwood

It was a bluebird sky day today up at The Wood. The skiing was amazing, with spring conditions all over the mountain.

Kirkwood Shuttle Bus Driver Bert

Here's a camphone photo of Bert. He's the Kirkwood shuttle bus driver.

Kirkwood Bus Driver Bert on Carson Pass

Today we took the Kirkwood shuttle bus up to the resort. The bus driver (his name was Bert), shared much of his It was great! He told us about the local history which certainly sounded colorful. Stories ranged from the influx of miners during the California gold rush to Mark Twain who spent a lot of time in the Tahoe area. If you get the chance, ride the Kirkwood bus and with a little luck Bert will be your shuttle driver so you can catch Bert's tour, he's the only driver that does it and I think you'll love it!
