Hope Valley is located
just a few minutes east of Kirkwood Ski Resort on Highway 88, and
just south east of Lake Tahoe.
After the Donner Party
tragedy during the Big Winter of 1846, over 55,000 immigrants
veered further south, choosing to come up from the Carson Valley
through the canyon and over the Pass, eventually settling into
California's Central Valley and beyond. Hope Valley has seen
little change since that time.
Well-known by area
photographers as the Aspens change color in the Fall, you can
experience the transformation from mid-September through October.
If you look carefully, you may still find some of the writings of
Basque immigrants on the Aspens. Some of the best untouched
wilderness in the Sierra can be found here. Fishermen love
pursuing their passion along the Carson River as it meanders
through beautiful open valleys and colorful meadows, or hike up to
the nearby peaks searching out the hidden lakes and streams while
photographing the wildflower-strewn hillsides and wildlife.
