Darin Talbot CD Featured
Olympic Valley, Calif. – What’s better than a drive around the Jewel of the Sierra with the Tahoe Troubadour singing songs and telling Tahoe stories on your car’s CD player, with a backpack pre-loaded with cheese and other gourmet goodies? Well, if you cap it off with a night at AAA Four-Diamond Resort at Squaw Creek™ courtesy of the “Lake Tahoe Spring Road Tour” package starting at only $179 per room, per night, based on a two-night minimum, it’s hard to beat. Resort fees and tax additional. Valid May 7 through June 17, 2010 the package includes nightly accommodations in a Deluxe Guestroom, a backpack full of gourmet picnic treats, and a copy of “Around Tahoe,” a CD produced by Tahoe-based singer, songwriter and storyteller, Darin Talbot.
Talbot’s CD serves as Lake Tahoe's ultimate tour guide, mixing stories, songs, legends, and folklore. It works in real time as you drive around the picturesque lake. The CD can be started at the corresponding Resort at Squaw Creek™ to make for a completely guided drive, replete with 47 tracks and over two hours of insightful content. A map is included, too.
“Springtime, with the snow-capped peaks, generally nice weather and uncrowded roads, is a perfect time to loop scenic Lake Tahoe,” said Heimo Brandstatter, Resort at Squaw Creek Assistant General Manager. Lake Tahoe is North America’s largest alpine lake and is famous the world over for its water clarity. A dinner plate can be seen to a depth of 70 feet. At a maximum depth of 1,645 feet, Lake Tahoe also stands as the second deepest Lake in North America. The 72-mile drive around Lake Tahoe takes visitors past some of the most photographed places in the Western United States, including Emerald Bay on the California-side and Sand Harbor in Nevada. Sixty-three streams and rivers flow into Lake Tahoe, but only one flows out – the Truckee River, which can be viewed by Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City.
