Ode to the River

By Eric Hobson

Fishing, bait lure or fly
Cutthroat rainbow or Brown

Playing in the river
Kayaking tubing or swim

Walking on the bank
Tahoe Pyramid Trail or River Walk

Bridges crossings old and new
From Fanny to Pyramid Lake

Wildlife supported so diverse
Beaver Deer and more

Tributaries and diversions
Natural and man made

Dining along the flow
From fine to food trucks

Parks and recreation
Casinos to music venues and playgrounds

Crossed by highways and byways
City streets and pedestrian spans

Truly the aorta of a region
The Truckee runs through it
